Quick Kids Craft: Easy Spotty Eggs

| March 19, 2012 | 26 Comments

Hello.. a very quick craft for you – easy spotty eggs – a great way to decorate eggs this easter with toddlers and young children! They are part of a post I wrote for Tesco Magazine. As a child, we used to colour our hard boiled eggs with food dye and then stick on pictures of rabbits, chicks and lambs… I don’t have any of those stickers, and to be honest, I thnk they are a little boring…. so I wanted an “easy” egg decorating craft for young children, that also didn’t matter if you eat the eggs afterwards (who wants to break an egg decorated as a bunny, cute chick, a lovely owl or even an angry bird?!) toddler Easter eggs decorations

How lovely are these? All you need to do, is

  • Boil your eggs.
  • Colour them with food dye (as per my egg blowing post),
  • Put on office or teacher’s stickers – they look great with just circles or stars! If the circles are large, you may get a little crease in them, but I think they still look lovely!

Alternatively – have you tried melting crayons onto your hot eggs? Want more ideas? 10 Egg Decorating Ideas:

    It was it was! Just the egg dyeing can be a faff.. but you just stick them all into one big bowl of dye and sorted!!

    Cerys thanks for the pin!!
