Easter Egg Designs

Stripes: Start with an egg dyed in one light hue (we chose blue). Wrap 1/8-inch masking tape lengthwise around the egg in stripes. Rub the tape firmly for a good seal. Dye egg again to desired color (darker blue) and let dry 10 minutes. Partially cover dark-blue areas with additional tape. Dye again (in yellow coloring to make green). Let dry 10 minutes. Remove all tape. Result: dark blue and green egg with light-blue stripes.

Zigzags: Cut contact paper into strips with pinking shears. Wrap strips crosswise on egg and firmly press. Dye egg to desired color and let dry 10 minutes. Remove strips. For two-color eggs, dye to a light color first and let dry. Add strips, dip in a darker shade, and let dry. Remove strips.

Dots: Apply small stickers to an egg in a symmetrical pattern and firmly press. Dye egg to desired color and let dry 10 minutes. Remove stickers. For two-color egg, first use a light color and let dry. Add stickers, dip in a darker shade, and let dry. Remove stickers.
