Easter is a time when eggs have their day. Eggs wait all year long to be treated like the kings and queens they deserve to be. Your children also have a ball on this holiday because they get to decorate eggs. There are hundreds of ideas on how to dye and decorate eggs for Easter, but here are three ideas that are both fun and easy to do. I know you will have the same fun and joy doing these decorations as much as I have writing about them. So get your pen and paper ready to write down some quick notes of materials needed. Remember all three ideas do require eggs.
This fun and easy to do decoration requires chalkboard paint. Cover the eggs with the chalkboard paint and let it dry. Once it dries out, you can now give your kids chalk and let them design the eggs out of their imagination. If they don’t like the designs they drew they can always wash it out and take another turn. This decorations literally has unlimited design options for your kids. Whatever they can think of they can design on the eggs. I usually design the eggs with faces of humans and animals. You could also just make patterns on them if you like. Have fun with your kids doing this project.
This unique decoration requires you to dye and decorate the eggs in such a way that the end result looks like a bird. Simply take an egg and dye it light pink. Let it dry completely before heading to step two. Once the egg has been dried you would take some color paper of your choice and cut it out in the shape of a small wing, keeping in mind the size of the egg. You don’t want the wings cut out to big because then they would cover the entire egg. Next, cut out a small triangle shape nose for your bird. Next, glue the nose to the egg and glue one wing to the egg. Next, take a black marker and draw a dot near the nose where the eye would be. Now you can place these eggs in a nest. They would resemble small birds lying in the nest. This is a very cute project for young girls. Boys typically can go with the red or blue dye for their eggs.
This decoration is the easiest of all. All you need for this is a fine tipped permanent black marker. Use your marker to draw thousands of different patterns on your eggs. Since you will be using a fine tipped marker you can really get down to creating patterns in a very depth mode. If you run out of ideas for patterns there is a very easy solution. Go to Yahoo images and type the word pattern. You can look through thousands of patterns and choose the ones that meet your needs. This decoration idea depends on your individual capability to draw with precision. The more accurate you draw the better the outcome. This is my personal favorite of all since it helps me really show off my artistic skills. You can take this a step ahead by adding props to your eggs. You can design small hats, eyes, and anything else you can think of with plain color paper.
Now, that you have got some ideas for decoration, go ahead and let the inner artist loose on those cute eggs this Easter. You don’t have to follow the ideas by the book you can always add your personal touch to each one of them.
