Use watercolors to decorate Easter eggs

Amazon: Crayola 16 Ct Washable Watercolors (affiliate link)
wife Katrina suggests:

The dye kits for Easter eggs are scary. The dyes can stain EVERYTHING: kids' hands, floors, tables, and the occasional egg.

Just as attractive and definitely a lot easier to clean up is the idea of using a kid's set of watercolor paints to decorate the eggs. It's just as exciting, a little more hands-on, and downright easier to clean up after.

I didn't grow up dyeing eggs. Painting them seems more fun to me anyway.

If you're a traditionalist, though, consider using a whisk to simplify egg dyeing  for kids.
