**UPDATED March 2021***

Since Easter is just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share some Easter Egg decorating ideas – we have tried many over the years, I’m not quite sure what we will be doing this year yet. Decorating eggs is actually a really cool way to introduce new techniques to your child – and it is fun for you to do too! I know you can buy kits but there are lots of fun ways without even going down that route.

Not only is egg decorating fun it helps with dexterity too!

If you think about it, most painting and drawing is done on paper – a flat surface, painting or drawing but the surface of an egg is far more difficult. This gives the child some great new skills to try.

We often boil a dozen white eggs then do a few a day so we can try out new techniques and it helps with the child not getting bored and wanting to give up halfway through.

If you have a Lego creator in the house, they might want to try this egg decorating machine, it was a lot of fun to build and took some testing to find the sweet spot! This was the live we did when Ebi-kun first made it.

Under the video, you will find a list of great Egg decorating ideas that even your pro egg decorators won’t have tried yet!
