Four fun ways to decorate easter eggs

Decorating eggs at Easter is my idea of a good time. Also, eating chocolate. But that goes without saying. Here are four fun ways of decorating we’ve tried (the eggs below are all ours) and links to the how-to’s. Hop to it and have fun!

1. A Subtle Revelry‘s painted polka dot eggs kept my 6- and 8-year-olds busy for a good half hour, without any tears of frustration. (Win win!)

2. Obsessed with all things pineapple so naturally, pineapple easter eggs. (Thanks for the idea, Brit + Co!)

3. Sarah Gunn at Canadian Living made the cutest strawberry eggs, and I just had to try them. I think these are my favourite this year.

4. And traditional dyed eggs in wee nests from the dollar store. I dripped a few drops of gel food colouring on the eggs and spread it all around with my hands, then wiped it off with a paper towel to get the slight variations in colour. Makes a cute table setting! (And yes, my hands were blue for a while.)

How are you decorating eggs this Easter?
