Egg decorating is a great way to entertain the kids at this time of year. Our tried and tested egg decorating ideas may come in handy!
These designs are great fun to do with your mini Mumblers and they can be as simple or as complicated as you like (you can find more examples and pics by popping your favourite ideas into Pintrest!).
Emoji Eggs How can you pick your favourite emoji? Well with this one you don’t have to! For emoji eggs, all you need is yellow and white paint (or use food colouring) and felt pens!
Humpty Dumpty Let the kids use their imagination with this one – they can raid the recycling to find accessories!
Chick Eggs Cover the eggs with different coloured tissue paper and use feathers or shredded paper for “hair”. Stick on felt or coloured paper for the beak and eyes can be either googly eyes or drawn on.
Easter Bunny The perfect Easter theme! Use pink tissue paper to cover the body, cotton wool for the legs and tail and a biro for the eyes and nose! Minimal parent involvement needed!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Eggs Super simple eggs for any TMNT fan out there. Either add green food colouring to the water for boiling, or paint the eggs green and add coloured paper or felt strips and googly eyes!
Scuba Eggs Really easy idea. Paint on the costume/trunks. Add a milk bottle top as the goggles and a straw for the snorkel!
Rugby Team One for the sports lovers out there! Draw, colour and cut out your shirt shapes (use paper or card) and add the design of your favourite teams. Draw faces on the players and position on either astroturf or grass inside a box. The box can then be decorated with posts and flags and maybe even a crowd! This can also be adjusted to football or hockey!
Paste Eggs -For a patterned design, draw on the eggs with light-coloured wax crayons. -Boil a pan of water with brown and red onion skins, then add eggs and boil until the shells are brown (it will be longer than the normal 10 mins hard boiling time). -Once they are nearly cold, rub with oil to make them shiny. -These eggs are great for Egg Rolling! It’s just as it sounds – rolling your egg (either on the flat or downhill) the furthest without it cracking!
