Egg Decorating Fun for the Entire Family

Every year we decorate Easter eggs but we usually do the same old thing and use food coloring. This year I wanted to step it up a notch so I searched through Pinterest for the best ways to decorate using items I already had at home and the list that I came up with was too fantastic not to share. Seriously, there are so many ways to decorate an Easter egg other than using food colouring. I am floored by all the ideas in the post and I want to try them all!! You will too. Go through the list and let me know which one or ones you want to try with your kids this year!

Egg Decorating Creativity

The best thing about these egg decorating ideas is that they a lot of them are themed based. If your little one is really into dinosaurs or super heroes you can find some non-permanent tattoos and have fun attaching those to your eggs. Also, egg decorating isn’t just for little kids. Many of these fun ideas are great for big kids too. Let them look through the list and find the decorating idea they want to do. Let them express through own creativity using sharpie pens or highlighters.

I’m so excited to share my crafting TV show Curious Crafting which launched in July 2022 on TVOkids and TVOkids YouTube! Season 2 aired in August 2023! My show was also nominated in 2023 for Best Live Action Preschool Series by the Youth Media Alliance Awards of Excellence.

Curious Crafting Season 1 is also now airing in Australia on ABC! Watch it here!

Set in the ultimate crafting space, Curious Crafting is a short form pre-school age series about the joy of making crafts. I lead a rotating cast of adorable little preschoolers (including my own) making magic out of common household objects.

In each episode we transform recycled items into magical crafts like a milk carton school bus, paper bag puppet or cotton pad turtle. The crafters learn and laugh their way through each activity while demonstrating what their young imaginations can create. 

Curious Crafting shares the adventure and joy of making art with takeaway lessons for creating crafts at home.
