Whether you like to decorate hard boiled eggs, blown eggs or heck, even plastic eggs, I’ve got a fantastic way to make your kid’s Easter basket brimming with a rainbow of colors…and character!

Every year I love to decorate eggs with my kids! Since we like to admire our hard work, we usually do paper mache eggs for display. But we still dip a few hard boiled eggs in dye just for traditions sake. Or peel them and do THIS to them.

The Instant Pot has been GREAT for making easy to peel eggs (5-5-5 anyone?) but if you don’t have one of these miracle cookers, you might want to try this fun little hack for perfectly peelable eggs.
