Easter egg decorating was so easy when we were growing up. Dip some eggs in dye and you were done. Today’s eggs are extra – very, very extra. If your kids want to make cool Easter eggs, there are several options out there. Actually, the sky’s the limit. Here are some Easter egg decorating ideas to get you started.
Animals are great for little ones. You can use markers to draw on the faces of different animals. Keep it as basic as possible. If you like, you can dye the eggs to match the color of the animals. Red for foxes, brown for owls, pink for bunnies, etc. You could simply draw on the face of a bunny and then draw a fluffy tail on the back of the egg.
Star Wars Characters
Star Wars has remained a popular theme for decades. Best of all, drawing on the faces of R2-D2, Darth Vader, storm troopers, and Yoda is fairly easy to do. You can find many templates on Pinterest, if you’re not comfortable with freehand.
There are so many cool things you can do with the mythical creatures’ theme. You can draw scales on the eggs to mimic mermaid or dragon scales and color them to match. You could draw eyelashes, a nose, and a mouth, and then attach a horn to the top for unicorn eggs. You can also just tie-dye the eggs with swirled pastel colors for mermaids and unicorns and swirled dark colors for dragons.
Superheroes are another popular theme. You can draw the faces of superheroes onto the eggs. You can also dye them to match the color of the superhero. Red for Iron Man, green for the Hulk, blue for Superman, etc. You can also simply dye the eggs and put a sticker of the superhero’s logo on the eggs.
If you want something more detailed, draw patterns onto the eggs. This can be such a relaxing method for Easter egg decorating. Older kids will love this. Draw the pattern with a black color-safe marker and then color the pattern in with other colors. Do a Google search for easy to draw patterns for inspiration.
Easter egg decorating doesn’t have to be plain. You can be so extra with your designs. Whether you have little kids that love animals or older kids that would like drawing and coloring patterns, there are some really fun designs to choose from. Think about what your kids love and how you can turn that into a fun Easter egg decorating design.
