Easter crafts are such a lovely craft to make – they are full of Spring colours and really help brighten the home after the long Winter days. We particularly love decorating Easter Eggs and love to share our Egg Decorating Ideas with you. We also have a great set of bunny crafts, chick crafts & Easter Basket Crafts for you too! Easter crafts and Easter Egg Decorating in particular form part of every Easter celebration and I hope my children grow up with happy Egg decorating memories!!
You can decorate your egg shells (from blown eggs) or you can decorate hard boiled eggs.
How to Blow Eggs:
How 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. How to dye your eggs using food colouring (though we do often paint ours) and a simple “very traditional” Austrian design, that I love! (Well I would, as I am Austrian!
Egg Decorating ideas for Preschoolers

This is a super fun craft Crayon Eggs – a wonderful way to use up crayon odds and ends with a beautiful colourful result!

Egg Decorating For Preschoolers – Animals
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). It does mean, that I painted the eggs and Red Ted “only” decorated them. But he LOVED making them and I still love these owls all this time later (we still have them). Check out the post to see both the owls and birds.
Tissue Paper 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 (affiliate link)!
Super easy bunny eggs
Yep, another “must” do egg decorating idea.. turn your Easter eggs into Bunny Easter Eggs!! Quickly and easily. The kids will love them.

We love these little Mermaid Eggs. We had great fun creating this Ocean Mermaid Diorama a couple of years ago (post will be live on 19th March).
This super simple “Hair Dress Scene” won my daughter first prize when she was in Year 1. We actually did it very simply and in a bit of a “hurry” and last minute.. but I think the teacher’s could resist that Cress Hair!! The Eggcellent Hairdress indeed!
Angry Bird Easter Eggs
Get older kids enthusiastic by decorating eggs in their favourite characters. Angry birds are sure to be popular and we have a whole set of them. We should have adde these to a “scene” in order to do better in the school Egg Decorating competition I think!
Humpty Dumpty Easter Eggs
You have to at some point in your egg decorating life make a “Humpty Dumpty egg“. Here the kids designed and made their own interpretations!
Batman Egg Decoration
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!
