And best of all, these are so easy to make. Kids of all ages will be able to join in the decorating fun!
How to Paint Wooden Easter Eggs
- Wooden eggs (you can also find these in craft stores in the Easter section)
- Sharpie markers
- Liquid watercolor paints or watercolor paint pods
- Draw designs on your wood eggs
We did this with the sharpie markers. You can doodle or draw something spring-y like flowers.
- Paint over the designs
Then paint over your designs with the watercolors. The black marker lines will show through the paint nicely. Let dry.
- Add a protective coat of beeswax (optional)
Admire your new colorful Easter eggs!
You can also give them as a gift. Or add them to your play kitchen for some pretend play!
Note: You can also use this technique to paint other wooden items, such as wood building blocks or any of the items you can find in the unpainted wood section of the craft store.
