I’m starting to get the itch… the Easter egg decorating itch. Although I am not a huge fan of dying eggs, I do like jumping into the holiday spirit by getting creative and finding unique Easter egg ideas. My favorite thing to do is get my kids involved and come up with unique and interesting ways to display our eggs each year.
This year been no exception. While searching for ideas for another project, I ran across DIY Lego Easter Eggs from Its Always Autumn and fell in love. My boys LOVE legos and are always excited about involving Legos in anything we do.
Made in a similar fashion, the Star Wars Easter Eggs from Estefi Machado were a big hit around here. After seeing both of these ideas, my boys have added “egg decorating” to our weekly plan. Surprisingly we already have the materials and they are ready to get started. We have a few ideas to make the project our own, but I will let you get creative on your own.
Would you believe the very next day, my good friend Trish shared her Monseiur Eggs from Mom Dot and again I couldn’t get enough. As much as I tried to supress the desire to jump on the Easter bangwagon… these were just too cute and easy to resists.
Who would have thought that adding a few google eyes would be as cute as Googly Eyed Easter Eggs from One Charming Party and the Monseiur Eggs from Mom Dot?
If you are a fan of crafty things, you will love the Easter Egg Bunnies from My Kids Guide. They take the googly eyed idea a little further and turn their eggs into fuzzy little creatures. I could totally see my kids using this technique to make little robots or monsters.
The cuteness didn’t stop there. Just yesterday, my friend at The Craft Train shared her Sharpie Doodle Eggs. Such a simple idea, yet so unique and creative. I love how it turns your everyday egg into a masterpiece.
In fact, if you like the idea of using a sharpie for your easter eggs this year, you will love the Thumbprint Easter Eggs from A Sprouting Acorn. They combine keepsake personalization with cute sharpie arms and faces to turn your eggs into an instant hit with the family.
If you are looking to turn your eggs into an art piece, I have just the Easter egg idea for you. I am in love with these Washi Tape Easter Eggs from The Paper Place, especially since my boys love anything and everything to do with tape. Lately that is all they have been doing, is finding reasons to tape.
For more art creations, you could try these Melted Crayon Eggs from Art For Kids! I love how beautifully these turned out. The other day a good friend shared how to paint with crayons and ever since, I have wanted to do more with melted crayons.
I would be missing something if I did not include something from Mr. Printables in my roundup of Unique Easter Egg Ideas. The Easter Eggs Mix & Match Sculptures from Mr. Printables are simply amazing. There are so many other awesome ideas on the site you have to check out including egg people and eggs in cars. They are sure to make you giggle.
Honestly, I can’t decide who is more excited this year to decorate eggs; me or the kids. What I do know is that it will allow us time to connect as a family, enjoy each other’s company, and get creative!
Do you have a favorite way to decorate Easter eggs? I would love to hear about it!
