Calling all Easter bunnies!

Coloring Easter eggs is such a fun family activity. Trying new methods of decorating is always a good time, maybe messy, but always fun.

I always loved to do this and I wish I would have had this idea to try with my son. Check it out!

Rainbow Nest Eggs

What You Need

  • Cheesecloth
  • Hard-boiled eggs
  • Twist ties or string
  • Food coloring
  • Egg carton


  1. CUT cheesecloth into 6-inch squares – one for each egg to be colored.
  2. DAMPEN cheesecloth. WRAP around an egg, either twisting loosely and fastening it at both ends with twist ties OR bundling the edges together and fastening them at the top. Each method produces a different result.
  3. PLACE drops of different colors on cheesecloth in desired patterns. Then, TWIST the dye-spotted cloth more tightly around the egg so the colors run together to produce a rainbow’s swirl of color.
  4. UNWRAP the egg and let it dry in the egg.
