Egg BlowingHow To “Blow and Egg”, Colouring with Food Dye and a Traditional Design

That is a long title, but it is kind of my “introduction to Egg Decorating“, as it shares three things – how to blow and egg and some tips to make it easier.

I decided to paint these owls and birds egg decoration, as it is easy to control the colour this way (food colourings have a mind of their own).

Check out the post to see both the owls and birds.

One of my favourite Easter Egg decorating crafts to date are these Tissue Paper birds. The kids ADORED making them (bright colours and tactile) and the tissue paper and glue protects the egg a little like paper mache. My little one even cracked one of the eggs (she went bang bang bang on the table) whilst crafting and we were able to rescue it with the tissue paper. Perfect. These little guys also proudly feature in my by book Red Ted Art!

We wanted to give napkin decoupage a go and see how well it really works. When at a friend house she gave us a pretty patterned napkin.

Another great craft for the boys, is to encourage them to pick a favourite character of theirs and see how they can convert it into and egg. My 5yrs old decided he wanted to make a Batman egg and using Lego for his inspiration came up with this. Of course I helped him a little, but the design and concept is ALL HIS!
