Easter Egg Decorating Ideas
1. Using Crayons and Paints
Use of crayons is the simplest Easter egg colouring idea; one that your kid can try by himself without much effort. A simple floral design or even lines drawn across will look great. While using crayons, see that you use hard-boiled eggs that are warm but not too hot. This will help in getting a brighter design. This is because the wax will melt as soon as the crayon touches the warm egg and you wouldn’t need to press hard to make the designs dark. Poster paints are also a good option for older children. The final outcome will be neater as well.
2. Egg Smileys
Why not keep tradition away this year and try this simple yet modern way of decorating Easter eggs? Paint the eggs yellow and leave them to dry completely. Draw faces with a black sketch pen or marker to create emojis like ‘happy’, ‘oh no!’, ‘sad’ ‘tee-hee’ and so on. Your kid will really love doing it!
3. Using Rice
Colouring Easter eggs with rice is a new trend. Dye rice with food colour and leave it for about 20-30 minutes. Let the eggs cool completely, after which you can apply glue to it. Roll the eggs on the rice and your pretty Easter eggs are ready.
4. Blackboard Eggs
Does your kid love writing on the blackboard? Then, here is a creative way of doing it. Paint the eggs black and let them dry. Next, draw designs with chalk. You may also write Easter messages on it and let the eggs do all the talking for you.
5. Finger Print Eggs

6. Pressed Flower
Choose some pretty bright-coloured flowers such as bellflower, amaranth, carnation or lily. Also, look out for some lovely leaves and arrange them on a flower presser. Or to make it simpler, just place them in a hard-bound book. You’ll have to leave them for at least two weeks, so plan accordingly. Place the flowers in a book at least 2-3 weeks before Easter. Later, you can stick these pressed flowers on the eggshells. You can also draw floral outlines to create unique designs!
7. Elastic Bands
This is one of the best Easter egg dyeing ideas. Get some pretty elastic bands and wrap them around the eggs. Leave the eggs immersed in food colour and let them dry. You can also repeat the same procedure with different colours and bands. Once you remove them, you’ll see bands of white alternated with coloured bands on the eggs.
8. Leaves Print
This is another way of decorating the eggs in a cool way. For this you need raw eggs, a net cloth and some pretty unique shaped leaves. Place these leaves on the egg properly and tie it tight with the net cloth. Place these eggs in boiling water, which contains the food colour of your choice. Leave it for around 10-15 minutes, so that the colour is absorbed in the eggs and cooked as well. Remove the eggs and allow them to cool. Discard the cloth and there you have it, your dainty and unique Easter eggs!
