Spring is officially here, it is very exciting! This season is perfect for family fun. A great family activity is decorating Easter eggs for an Easter egg hunt. We have provided three fun egg decorating ideas for you and your family to try this season.
3 Fun Egg Decorating Ideas:
Preparation: Hard boil the eggs.
Gold-Foiled Easter Eggs: Go a step further than the typical Easter egg dying and experiment with gold foil eggs. This popular trend adds a glamorous metallic finish to your basic white eggs. The specific supplies you will need for this activity are gold foiling paper, foiling glue, and a paintbrush.
What to do: Take your hard-boiled egg in one hand and a paintbrush in the other. Dip your paint brush in your foiling glue and begin to paint the egg where ever you desire to have foil. You can either foil the entire egg or make designs with the foiling glue. Next, you will need to let the egg dry for approximately fifteen minutes. Neatly place down your gold foiling paper onto of your egg. Then you will begin to smooth out your foil paper. Lastly, you will remove any excess foiling paper from your egg.
Tie-Dye Eggs: Making fun tie-dye patterns has never been so easy. The supplies you will need for this project are food coloring, shaving cream, baking sheet, and a straw.
What to do: Spray a decent amount of shaving cream out on your baking sheet. Spread it out to make each side even. Now take the food coloring and begin to drip the colors all over the shaving cream. Take the straw and mix the colors together in a swirling motion. Then take your hard-boiled eggs and roll them in the shaving cream. Let your colored eggs sit for approximately ten minutes then rinse them off with water.
Glittered Eggs: These are an eye-catching version of eggs, and we love the way they look! All you need for this design is Mod Podge or white glue and glitter.
What to do: Take your hard-boiled egg and dip them into a small bowl of glue. Then dip a small amount of egg into the glitter. For example, if you want half the egg covered in glitter then dip half the egg in glue. Afterward, you can sprinkle your glitter on the glue-coated areas. For fun designs, you can use your fingers or a small paint brush. Have fun with your design and try doing some polka dots or stripes to add variety.
