Chicago (April 3, 2020) – Americans preparing for Easter this year will likely find that their plans look different from years past. While Easter plans may have changed, never has it been more important to connect with your loved ones, and make the most of an at-home Easter. The Incredible Egg is providing tips for at-home activities, recipes and decorating ideas to help families continue Easter traditions and find new ways to connect.
Half a Dozen At-Home Easter Activity Tips from the Incredible Egg:
#1: Use Fruits and Veggies from Your Fridge to Decorate Your Eggs
No food coloring? No worries! Create naturally dyed Easter eggs using ingredients you may already have in your fridge, such as beets, orange peels, spinach leaves or grape juice. Adding vinegar to natural dyes helps deepen the color, as does increased time in the dye. Plus, eggs decorated with food-safe materials that aren’t left outside the fridge for more than two hours can be safely eaten. Find step-by-step instructions here.
#2: Create Something New with Baking Staples
More people than ever before are cooking at home. In fact, 57 percent of Americans are more likely to cook at home in the current environment. Wondering what baking activity you can do as a family? Hop into the Easter season by making deliciously adorable Easter Bunny Cupcakes. Get the full recipe here.
