Egg-dyeing is one of the many fun staples of celebrating Easter. But there are plenty of other Easter ideas for this holiday, including egg hunts, eating egg-shaped candies, and doing pretty much everything and anything egg-related. How else would you celebrate a giant anthropomorphized bunny hopping to your door to deliver a basket of goodies?

While many adults celebrate this holiday with religion in mind, for children (and adults who are children at heart), it's about having fun. And that's where Easter eggs come to mind, because there's nothing better to kids than playing and eating candy, right?

If you're short on ideas for this year's egg hunt and want to add a little twist, lifestyle company Studio DIY has a great way to do this. They've created a way to make emoji Easter eggs part of this special day.

And the best part is, the eggs in this case aren't a bunny or even Jesus. They've created eggs that look like they're right off your smartphone. And better yet, you can make them yourself. And it's SUPER-easy.

Don't believe us? Take a look for yourself. Aren't they just super cute and unique?

Want to make them yourself? Well, first, you need eggs. You can use eggs that have the center blown out, or papier mâché eggs. Studio DIY says you can also use hard boiled eggs, but they don’t recommend eating them afterward. (You know, because paint shouldn't be ingested.)

You'll also need yellow, white, pink, and turquoise craft paint, black and red paint markers, and/or a paintbrush. After you have your materials, the instructions themselves are pretty simple:

1. Paint all eggs yellow and let them dry completely.

Not only will the kids enjoy this unique take on your emoji keyboard, but you can hide them around your yard or have them out for an Easter display. You can bring these emojis to life AND keep your kids occupied with something totally out of the box.
