A DIY LED No-Mess Easter Egg

A DIY LED No-Mess Easter Egg

Decorating eggs has always been one of our Easter highlights ever since we were a kid. Although as a child we loved making as much of a mess as possible with the dyes, as an adult we've changed to slightly more tidy ways (since we are the ones cleaning up). This kid friendly DIY project involves using LED lights to decorate eggs, which means, you guessed it, no mess.

Wanting a fun Easter project to do with his 11 year old son, Instructables user PaleoDan came up with this nifty little Instructable inspired by a Popular Mechanics article, that combines the low tech incredible edible egg with high tech LED lights.

To make this project you will need: 6 LED lights (various colors from Radio Shack), 6 2032 flat batteries, 6 eggs, electrical tape, and a nail.

We love that this project is so simple that it's highly kid friendly. We also love that you can get the fun color effects without having to deal with messy egg dyes. Three cheers for PaleoDan for a clever project that is easy on the budget and great for kids!

Check out the project on Instructables for the complete instructions.
