There are many Easter traditions, but none so dear as the tradition of dying Easter Eggs. Even as adults, we have fond memories of filling up bowls with Heinz Vinegar, dropping in PAAS color tablets, and bending those wire dippers in anticipation of coloring eggs. Sometimes it was difficult to be patient enough to see the creations, lifting them out of the dye too soon. I fondly remember gathering around a table with my family a few days before Easter to dye eggs, and it leaves me with some of the best memories.
Luckily, PAAS and Heinz Vinegar are still around today to allow us to pass along this tradition to our kids. But with time has come fun and new creations! PAAS is introducing seven new egg decorating kits including: Volcano Eggslosion (which uses melted crayon shavings for instant color) and Touch of Velvet (a kit that uses double stick adhesive and flocking powder to create fuzzy shapes). Don’t worry, there are still the original PAAS color tablets and the newer Color Cups for easy decorating fun! Here are a few we eggs I made together with my son this past weekend:
Heinz and PAAS have taken egg dying to a new level (and for a good cause) with the Easter Egg Decorator app.
This app is available online and through the iTunes app store. The app allows you to have the perfect egg decorating experience, but without all the clean up!
Step 1: You pick your color.
Step 2: Watch as the dye ingredients are “mixed together” and your egg gets dyed.
Step 3: Decorate your dyed egg with the Decorator Tools and Stickers
Step 4: Enjoy your masterpiece!
Not only is this app fun for kids of all ages but it is charitable. From now until March 31, when you decorate and share a virtual Easter egg using the free app, Heinz and PAAS will donate $1 (up to $25,000) to the Make-a-Wish Foundation. That’s something you can truly feel good about! Plus, decorating virtual eggs creates less mess, especially for younger kids!
