Our most egg-cellent Nickelodeon characters from then and now

DIY Nickelodeon Easter Eggs

To get your creative juices flowing, here are six kid-friendly ways to create DIY Nickelodeon eggs using only items from around the house.

  1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Easter Eggs

Or should we say, Teenage Mutant Ninja Eggs? These masks were cut out of paper, but could also be painted on. For a sillier version, use googely eyes.

  1. Slime-tastic Eggs

#PinterestFail moms, this one is for you. Just glob some green paint on top of a white egg and you’re good to go!

  1. Hey, Arnold!

Arnold and Gerald Easter Eggs

Move it, egg-head! These eggs are so simple, they don’t even require dye. Just some good ol’ fashion construction paper, a little bit of paint, and some glue.

  1. Rocko’s Modern Life

Rocko and Filbert Easter Eggs

Parents, your youngin’s might not recognize this wallaby and his neurotic turtle friend from an earlier Nickelodeon era, but Rocko and Filbert work so perfectly as eggs!

  1. SpongeBob SquarePants

SpongeBob, Patrick, and Pineapple Easter Eggs

Who lives in an (egg) pineapple under the sea? These abstract SpongeBob Easter eggs are incredibly simple to make and are instantly recognizable.

  1. Doug

Doug and Porkchop Easter Eggs

And finally, Doug Funnie and his dog, Porkchop. Doug’s iconic hair can be made from dental floss that was colored with a black permanent marker, and Porkchop’s nose is a stray googley eye colored black as well!


Ready to get started? First, hard-boil your eggs.

Hard-Boil Easter Eggs

What You’ll Need

Saucepan (preferably with a lid)
White vinegar
Eggs, hard-boiled

How to Make

Step One: Gently arrange eggs in a single layer at the bottom of the saucepan

Step Two: Add enough cold water to cover all eggs by about 1 inch.

Step Three: Turn burner on high heat, wait for water to boil

Step Four: Once water boils, place lid on top and remove saucepan from heat. Let stand for 12 minutes.

Step Five: Pour off hot water and immediately rinse eggs in cold water until fully cooled.


Forgot to buy an egg coloring kit? No worries, because the dyes are DIY, too!

DIY Easter Egg Dye Supplies

What You’ll Need

White vinegar
Food dye
Cups (for holding the dye)
Measuring utensils
Slotted spoon (or wire egg holder or tongs)

How to Make

Step One: Pour 1 tsp of white vinegar in each egg cup.

Step Two: Add 10-20 drops of food dye in each cup to achieve desired color (tip: many food dye packages have color recipes on the box).

Step Three: Add 1/2 cup of boiling water to each cup. Warm water works, too, as a kid-safe precaution.

Step Four: Let the cooled hard-boiled eggs soak in the homemade dye for 5 minutes. You can soak eggs longer if you’d like to achieve a richer color.

Step Five: Remove eggs using a slotted spoon and let dry (tip: to ensure an even dry, cut a paper towel roll into sections to make little drying stands).
