Kids who can’t wait to dye Easter eggs and crafty parents who like to elevate decorating to an art form (or in search of a creative outlet during a hectic day) will appreciate the PAAS Heinz Egg Decorator. Decorate one egg or a basket full on the website or through the free iPad app (free).
Start by selecting one of the 10 different egg dye colors and then use the slider to adjust the color from a light tint to a bright intense shade.
Once the egg has been virtually dipped in the egg dye, choose tools like a paint brush, chalk, glitter glue, and assorted stickers to adorn the egg. Make a mistake? No problem! One of the tools is an eraser that can easily clean up any decorating mishaps.
It’s also very easy to decorate all sides of your egg thanks to the rotate and tilt feature. Click on the arrows to spin the egg in the direction you want. You’ll notice that the egg starts to vibrate slightly. This indicates that it’s spinning.
Grab your favorite tool and start the egg spinning to decorate all sides. Put any of the tools on the egg to decorate and have fun trying to create straight or wavy lines that encircle the egg. When you’re ready, hit the stop sign to make the egg stop decorating.
When your egg is decorated to your liking, choose an egg stand, save it to your basket, and then share it! For each digitally dyed egg that is shared before March 31, 2013, Heinz and Paas will make a donation to Make-a-Wish Foundation up to $25,000. Be sure to talk to your kids about who it’s ok to share their photos with before turning them loose on the site or the app!
