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 I just love the miniature 3-dimensional canvas that eggs provide.
Here are 11 Easter egg decorating ideas for kids that we’ve loved, plus a few extra we’d like to try.
11 Easter Egg Ideas 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 Easter 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 shows you how and makes for lovely Easter eggs.
Make these pretty collage Easter eggs with images from printed paper napkins. This project is easy enough for children to do and the results are beautiful.
Use oil pastels and watercolors to create a lovely watercolor resist effect 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 the best crayon resist effect on your Easter eggs.
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.
