INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Draw designs on your wood eggs

    We did this with the sharpie markers. You can doodle or draw something spring-y like flowers.

  2. Paint over the designs

    Then paint over your designs with the watercolors. The black marker lines will show through the paint nicely. Let dry.
