Spring has sprung! Well not really considering Upstate NY got a ton of snow and expecting another storm this weekend, BUT I am definitely having spring fever.

I have moved into making some spring DIY and I have to share one of my favorite ones. I made some mini Easter eggs with dried beans and they are so adorable! They can be used for a counting activities, sensory bins or decorate in doll houses.

I have made colored macaroni before and this is just as easy. Check out how I made them!

Add a cup of white or light colored beans in a ziplock bag and a about 20 drops of desired food coloring. Add about a tsp of vinegar into bag. I do not recommend using gel food coloring, I did not find the color to stick at all. Seal the bag and shake it up until beans are completely covered. Pour them out onto a paper towel and spread them out evenly have them air dry overnight.

These make adorable Easter basket fillers!

They are also fun to add to play dough activities.
