10 Easter Crafts That Have Nothing To Do With Dyeing Hard-Boiled Eggs

I remember many a year when we painted hard-boiled eggs in my childhood kitchen before Easter. I never really understood why (you're just going to eat them anyway), and while egg painting has come a long way, I still prefer to spend my time doing Easter crafts that have nothing to do with dipping food into pastel dye. That's why I've rounded up a few Easter projects that are perfect for your annual Easter party and egg hunt, and bring a little festive decor into your place.
