Easy New Ways to Decorate Easter Eggs with Kids
Tired of solid colors and those little weird smiley face stickers in the boxes? These Easter Eggs are guaranteed to be a hit at your house.
A Splash Of Slime Eggs
Mix some craft paint with clear kid-friendly glue, then add some glitter for a touch of sparkle. Drizzle the mixture over the top of the eggs and let the liquid ooze down the sides. Prop each egg on a cut piece of the cardboard tube and be sure to cover your work surface with a protective cloth or newspaper because the colors run right to the bottom of the egg. Dry for at least 30 minutes to an hour.
For these textured beauties we mixed packs of unsweetened Kool-Aid in two bowls—grape and blue raspberry in one and cherry and black cherry in the other—along with hot water. Roll the eggs around, letting them sit for 10 minutes at a time, then move some more. Each time you move the egg, take it out and dab gently with a paper towel. You’ll see the tiny bubbles that form on the shell from the mixture are what helps create the dragon egg texture. You can completely cover the egg with the liquid or submerge at different depths for a cool layering effect. Wear protective gloves for this one because Kool Aid stains!
We're obsessed with chalkboard paint, but never thought about using it on eggs! Just paint your eggs and then draw fun designs in chalk. When you’re tired of the design, erase it and start again. Would also be cool to use these with names written on them as place cards for Easter dinner.

Dye those eggs bright yellow and use a black sharpie to draw a host of silly faces. You can make the eggs “surprised,” “happy,” or “giggly” or any of your favorite emojis.
