Looking for fun ideas for Easter egg decorating with kids? We’ve got you covered.
Decorating eggs is something that we like to do in the month leading up to Easter. Sometimes we blow out our Easter eggs first, sometimes we decorate wooden eggs, and sometimes we just use regular hard-boiled eggs, but since it’s early we don’t eat them.
Here are 11 Easter egg decorating ideas for kids that we love doing year after year!
11 Ideas for Easter Eggs for Kids
Use washi tape on dyed or undyed eggs to add a colorful and easy design. Bonus: a roll of washi tape works perfectly as an egg holder!
Combine drawing frames with sharpies and then dyeing with Kool-Aid to make these beautiful eggs!
Kool-Aid dye and vegetable oil work together to make a stunning marbled effect on the eggs.
Create sticker resist art (like tape resist art!) on Easter eggs by using stickers you have at home.
Much like the idea above, this decorating technique uses hole reinforcement stickers to create an image that will remain white after the egg is dyed.
Did you know you could make your own image transfers? This creative idea is lovely and easy!
Make these pretty collage eggs with images from printed paper napkins. This project is easy enough for children to do and the results are beautiful.
Use sharpie markers and watercolors to create a lovely design and the best part is that these wooden eggs can be used year after year!
Melted crayon eggs are easier than you might think and fun to do with kids. Draw on hot eggs with crayons, then dye for a really cool crayon resist effect.
Bleeding tissue paper creates a gorgeous stained effect on both real eggs and drawings of them. Find instructions on how to do both in this post.
If you are looking for something to do with all of these beautiful eggs, an Easter egg tree is the perfect idea! It is easy to assemble and creates a lovely Easter centerpiece for your home.
