A rustling can be heard…
Grey, fluffy and with a cheeky look, it peeks out from behind the green leaves. But – wait! Was that just the Easter Bunny? No, that can’t really be… The children rub their eyes in disbelief. If you take a second look at the garden, you can only see the green of the leaves. As fast as he was there, he is also gone again as quickly! The children quickly run excitedly out into the garden, perhaps to catch him after all, or at least to track down his hiding place. But unfortunately too late. It’s a pity, but then definitely next year…
In addition to the Easter bunny, who hops diligently through the gardens and hides sweet little things, numerous other traditions and customs are also associated with the upcoming Easter holidays. On the long weekend, not only the time together with the family is enjoyed extensively. Baking delicious Easter bread or delicious Easter lamb, tying palm bushes and, of course, the traditional dyeing of colourful Easter eggs is also part of it!
Now our insider tip: To give the brightly colored Easter eggs a beautiful shine, you can polish them with a little oil at the end.
We wish you a lot of fun and a creative Easter season! Maybe you’ll catch the Easter Bunny this year!

Easter Egg Dyeing Instructions
Not only is it child’s play, but it’s also super fast and makes your children’s anticipation of the Easter bunny even greater! We have a tutorial for you that will help you dye for sure. All you need are Easter egg colors and several containers in which you can dye the eggs. For bright colors, you can use food coloring from the drugstore or supermarket.
And off you go!
1. Bring the desired number of eggs to a boil in a pot of water and boil hard.
2. In the meantime, you can put the liquid paint in a container with a little vinegar water or dissolve the dye tablet in it. Of course, you can mix the base colors as you like, for example to dye your eggs pink or purple.
3. When the eggs are hard-boiled, place them in the paint-vinegar water mixture while warm. A little tip, the longer you leave the eggs in the color, the more intense it becomes.
4. Once you’re happy with the shade, remove the egg from the paint and place it on a piece of paper towels to dry.
5. After the paint has dried, you can also decorate the eggs in a very unusual way, for example with dots, patterns or leaf copper – there are no limits to your imagination here.
