Hey crafty friends! Easter is less than a month away and today I’m sharing a quick Easter egg decorating idea. These watercolor Easter eggs are easy to make and allow your little artist to create any designs they’re imagination desires in a few simple steps.
The weather has been amazing here, almost a little too perfect. It’s been between 75-85 …..in March! We’ve been spending a lot of time outdoors soaking up the sun and enjoying every minute of it before it gets too hot. In between our outdoor playtime we’ve been working on a few Easter crafts with the kids. Last week Madi, our 4 year old, asked if we could dye Easter eggs and I thought it would be fun to let them watercolor paint the eggs. Other than playing outside the kids have been into painting..a lot! They ask to paint everyday (thank you giant $5 ikea roll of paper). We quickly went through an entire carton of eggs, working like mad with our paint brushes and watercolor paints. The little guy LOVES, I mean LOVES LOVES painting so he enjoyed this activity the most. I can’t wait to work on a few new Easter egg decorating ideas with them over the next few weeks.
To color our eggs we used a watercolor palette from Michaels.
Using the watercolor paints we painted random designs onto the eggs. Sometimes we allowed the paint to dry in-between colors other times we mixed the wet paint to allowed them to run together, which creates a marbled look. You could also dip (or brush on) the egg in water then add drops of watercolors onto the egg and let the colors swirl on their own.
I think I’m having just as much fun as they are coloring eggs. These watercolor eggs inspired some major Easter crafting that I can’t wait to share with you!
