Domino Style Director Naomi Demanana Shares Her Parenting Hack for Chic Easter Egg Decor

0

As a mother of two children (ages 6 and 7), I have styling director duties that go beyond my role at Domino. At home, I’m also in charge of researching new products, but my priority is to find holiday projects that are fun, easy, entertaining and that hold my children’s attention for more than a minute.

In my experience, the dip and dyed Easter egg protocol doesn’t have much shelf life. My kids dip their hard-boiled eggs in it, fish them out a few minutes later, and then they’re off to the next adventure before the coloring even dries. That’s until I stumbled upon this simple Amazon product that keeps my little creations thrilled for much longer.

This game changer makes decorating eggs super simple and, as a bonus, it also turns out that stripes are all the rage. Here’s how it works: The bunny-shaped device (requires two AA batteries, not included) holds an egg between its legs, which start spinning it automatically once you flick the switch. That’s where the 10 markers in the kit come in: when you touch them on the rotating surface, the scratches start to take shape. I like to experiment with color combinations and patterns by changing the position or pressure of the pens, and for a more cohesive aesthetic I’ll choose the palette. Even if little hands can’t hold the marker tip perfectly still, you’ll end up with a cool spiral effect that your pint-sized artists will be proud to show off.

And because I’m not a fan of cleaning up Technicolored puddles and glitter explosions, I appreciate the nearly mess-free nature of this machine. That said, to extend the fun a bit further, sometimes we do the dip dyeing first so the kids have colorful canvases to feed the “bunny”. And even when the whirlwind wonder starts to fade, they like to stick to a few freehand drawings with the markers. Mess-free and truly elegant Easter eggs? Hop to her.
