Decorating eggs can be really fun for children allowing them to come up with elaborate or wacky designs.
Decorations can range from a simple two tone design to a more elaborate multi-coloured egg. Simply coat the egg in one colour, allow this to dry and then apply as many other colours and designs on top as desired using. Use paint or pens to decorate.
A great way to help provide ideas for decorating eggs is to give a theme. For example, nursery rhymes (Humpty Dumpty), favourite films or tv programme (an egg Yoda or Teletubby), or family and friends. This encourages more creative egg decorating where pieces of cloth and felt can also be used to make clothes and hats for the egg characters.
Egg cups and egg box squares provide the perfect stand for showing off your finished eggs.
Before starting to decorate the eggs, make sure that you either hard boil or blow them first to avoid egg explosions.
Blowing an egg is simple. All you need to do is make a small hole in the top and bottom of the egg using a pin or needle. Then carefully holding the egg over plate or bowl simply cover the top hole with your lips and blow the contents out.
