Use A Whisk.

If you're dyeing eggs, using a whisk to dip them into the colored solution is a good way to get the entire egg submerged, and makes it much easier to remove it once it's done.

Try Nail Polish.

You can use nail polish instead of paint to decorate your eggs, but be sure to look out for nail polish that's safe for kids.

Use Chalk.

Another alternativee to dye is colorful chalk—and it's less clean-up, too.

Use Rubber Bands.

To add a fun pattern to the eggs, wrap a rubber band (or more than one) around the egg and dip. Once it's dry, remove the rubber band and you'll have a cute striped pattern.

Try Scotch Tape.

With the help of scotch tape, you can create various patterns for the dyed eggs. Just tape pieces around the egg in any pattern you'd like. Remove them once dry, as you would the rubber bands.

Use Sharpie.

If all else fails, you can always break out a permanent marker and try out a striped or polka dot pattern (or if you're feeling adventurous, something a little more elaborate).
