2 dozen egg decorating activities

Easter Egg Decorations:

Watch your boys get excited about washing their hands when they get some dinosaur eggs (soap) in their treat basket this year!

Create a felt Easter Egg decorating kit for your child – this would be a great quiet time activity for kids who are no longer napping.

Create an Easter Sensory table using plastic eggs, cartons, pom-poms and tongs.   My kids would have a blast!

Who needs to use dye to decorate eggs – why not try those plastic gems – love the finished product and the simplicity in this decorating eggs method.

Another dye-free egg activity is decorating eggs with tissue paper – Maggy made her eggs into cute little birds.

Make a hanging garland using paint chips to create egg-shapes – I love how the eggs are multi-colored and this project is easy enough for my toddlers to create.

Reuse egg shells and used birthday candles to create a new flame – pour wax into the shells and use a birthday candle as the “wick”.

Easter Egg Games:

Elle Belles Bows created a Preschool easter game for her toddlers.   She put different sounds in different eggs and her kids enjoyed exploring with their ears.

Craftberry Bush has an idea on how to decorate Easter Eggs she covered them with yarn – They are so bright and cheery!

Allison from No Time for Flashcards covered a balloon with glue and yarn to create a see-through yarn for Easter egg art.

I love this word family activity using eggs from 1+1+1.   She put part of the word on one half of the egg and the rest of the word on another half, then they can switch beginning blends and ending blends to create new words.

These are so easy to make – everyone loves melt-in-your-mouth peeps!   Here is a great marshmallow peeps recipe.

Practice counting and answering math questions with this educational Easter game: Math Egg Toss.

Remember Tall Painting?   If you follow me on facebook, I featured it a few weeks ago.   Here is a version using half of a plastic egg, a paint lava egg.   Pour the paint on and watch it swirl!

Easter Egg Decorating:

Here is an idea of where they filled balloons with goop to create “silly putty eggs”.   I love it!   Probably a great way to store homemade silly putty so it doesn’t get funky as quickly

Yesterday on Tuesday, has cute word covered eggs to help your preschooler learn in an Easter Activity for Kids.

These marshmallow egg pops are so simple and cute!   I think my kids could do this activity without me – well other than they’d probably make themselves sick – too many sticky marshmallows!

Maureen of Spell Out Loud used her egg shells as a mini-planter for sprouting plants.   Brilliant, a contained garden and its biodegradable.   They decorated their eggs to be little gorillas.

These Tie-Dyed eggs from the Chocolate Muffin Tree are made out of coffee filters, markers and a spray bottle.   Fun!

And lastly is a tutorial on how to decorate using glue, rubber bands, eyedroppers and more.


Other Egg-y Fun:

Do a Science Experiment with eggs.   Place your eggs in vinegar for a couple of day, they will swell and the shell will dissolve leaving the egg “naked”.

Make an ice egg for bath-time play.   Fill a balloon with colored water, add a sponge cut into a shape.   Your child now has an “egg” to melt.

Have an Easter Egg hunt – these are some great tips on how to make your hunt super fun!

Do you have scraps of yarn?   We have a massive basket – and hope to make these homemade pom-pom chicks this year.

Recycle your TP tubes to create fun spring chicks.

Make art – by throwing/dripping eggs.   Fill blown egg shells with some paint and let them drip on a page or if you are daring, take them outside!   Your kids will love pelting the fence (and the shells are good for your grass.

Easter Activities for Kids:

You have to try these Easter treats.

    I tried to add your button to my blog, but it does not appear to be working. I grabbed the one from Imagination Tree and it worked fine for me.
