Decorating Eggs


Anything goes when decorating hard cooked eggs. Pictured eggs are decorated with:

12 each large fresh eggs, hard-cooked

Colored felt tip pens (lightening bolts, mosaics, thunder clouds, flower designs)

Melt crayons. Hot crayon in candle flame* and let melted crayon drip over egg and run down sides. Use several colors layering one over the other.

Stamps. A star stamp on a gold stamp pad makes an elegant egg design.

Spray paint. Our silver eggs were placed on old newspaper and sprayed.

Commercial Dyes. These are simple to do and make an eggscellent base to decorate further.

* Recommend parental supervision

Thumbprint eggs: Roll thumb on stamp pad then o to hard cooked eggs. Use black marking pen to transform prints into animals.

Personalized eggs: Use decals to put kids names on hard cooked eggs.

Cascarones: Use a knife to knock the tops off raw eggs. Empty contents in a bowl and refrigerate until use. Rinse out egg shell, let dry, then decorate with felt tip pens. Fill egg with confetti or other small scraps of paper. Use tissue paper and glue to seal the opening. On festive occasions, like birthdays or Easter, break open the eggs and scatter the colorful contents.

Pastel eggs: Use commercial dyes but leave eggs in color for 1 hour only. Results in pretty pastel colors.

Stamped eggs: Use favorite stamps to decorate hard cooked eggs.
