Updated March 2021

Looking for fun Easter egg ideas for decorating eggs with kids?

Decorating eggs is something that we like to do in the month leading up to Easter. We have been known to go a bit crazy with our Easter eggs, in fact. But we just love the miniature 3-dimensional canvas that eggs provide.

Sometimes we blow out our Easter eggs first, sometimes we decorate wooden eggs, and sometimes we just use regular hard-boiled eggs even though it’s early (we don’t eat them).

Here are 11 Easter egg decorating ideas for kids that we love doing year after year!
