Easter is on its way! It’s now the time to prepare some lovable decorations to welcome the Easter. You can always make some decorations with your kid like drawing the Easter eggs. I am sure that your kid will love this activity very much. The steps shown in this tutorial are considered to be easily followed by kids.

Supplies

The first thing that you need to do before decorating the eggs is to hard boil the eggs. If you want your Easter eggs to last much longer, you can try to blow out the eggs. You can remove the content of the egg by creating two holes on the egg where the first hole just small enough for the straw to come in, and another hole needs to be smaller than the first hole. Insert the straw on the first hole and blow the egg out so that the content can flow out from the second hole. After all content is remove, wash the eggshell and let it dry or you can microwave the eggshell to fasten the process.

To decorate the eggs, you need to prepare the following materials and tools:

  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Egg dye or any undiluted food colorings
  • Fine-tipped permanent markers
  • Stencils

Before decorating the hard boiled eggs using the stencils, it is better to color them first with various egg dyes to make your Easter eggs more eye-catching. After the eggs are boiled, you can leave them resting for awhile to let them dry in order to omit any moisture attached on the eggs’ surface.

While waiting the hand boiled eggs to be dry, you can prepare the dyeing first. Mix ¾ cup of water, 1 tablespoon of white vinegar, and 10 drops of the food coloring. If you plan to dye your eggs with more than one color, you can prepare some cups and fill in each cup with different dyed mixture. Dip the eggs into the cup and leave them for about 5 minutes. If you want the color of the egg to be much deeper, you can leave it in the cup longer. Then, take the eggs out of the dye and let them dry for awhile.

However, if you don’t want to dye your eggs, you can also try to paint the eggs first. You can use the acrylic paint to do it. Apply one color of the acrylic paint on one egg. Make sure that you apply various colors of the acrylic paint to decorate the eggs to have colorful Easter eggs at the end. After all eggs are being painted, leave them for awhile until the paint is dry completely.

Step 1

This project uses three stencil templates. You can use more than three if you want to. now, take one egg and one stencil template. Cover the stencil over the egg and start drawing the patterns by using the permanent markers. You can color the egg with any colors that you want. Make sure that you draw all patterns of the stencils onto your egg. Keep on doing it after all eggs are being stenciled.

Step 2

To make it more attractive, after you remove the stencil templates from the eggs, you can also draw some additional patterns on the eggs’ surfaces. As seen from the picture, the small dots are being implemented among the stenciled patterns.

Step 3

You can ask your kid to also add some additional decorations onto the stenciled eggs. Let your kid use his/her creativity to draw the eggs. After all eggs are decorated, you can arrange them on the plate or other compartment and your Easter eggs are ready!
