I am all for doing things the easy way. I’m definitely an involved mom that likes doing crap with my kids, but everything that I craft and everything that I cook must have roughly five steps or less.

I’m very excited to celebrate Easter with my toddler this year since he finally understands what’s going on. But I have to confess—I’ve been dreading the thought of dyeing Easter eggs. From what I remember, Easter egg dyeing was a long and arduous process that usually ended with broken eggs and broken hearts (i.e., one of my parents sighing in frustration and/or yelling at me). Not so much fun on the Lord’s holiday.

I want to protect my children’s fragile psyches and also have fun dyeing Easter eggs, dammit! Fortunately for me, the Lord also created Pinterest so that I could research Easter egg hacks to keep the peace and keep my family together.

Don’t lose your shit by dyeing Easter eggs the old-fashioned way. Use these incredibly uncomplicated Easter egg tricks that put the “easy” back in Easter:

1. Boil some eggs and smear paint on them with Q-tips—voilà!
