Fun and Kid-Friendly Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

While dying real eggs can be fun, I've always had a hard time destroying something that looks so beautiful. I prefer the idea of making Easter eggs that last. I also love Easter egg decorating ideas that my 6-year-old and I can enjoy together. I hope these ideas, which are also kid-friendly, will inspire you to get creative with your egg decorating this Easter.

For each of the Easter crafts pictured below I used matte, plastic Easter eggs, but the same techniques could also be applied to real, hardboiled eggs.

What you need to make Chalkboard Easter eggs:

Creating chalk Easter eggs is probably one of my favorite egg decorating techniques. I love that they remind me of old school chalkboards—I give this egg decorating idea an A+!

-Paint - To create a chalkboard surface, paint your egg with black acrylic paint or black chalkboard paint. I used acrylic paint.

-Chalk crayons - I am obsessed with these Chalk-o-Rama chalk crayons. Not only are they amazing for chalkboard Easter eggs, but they also work wonderfully on leaves and rocks.

-Chalk markers - Neon Chalkables Liquid Markers create bright and smooth chalk designs and are also a great option for hand lettering on Easter eggs.

Highlighter Easter Eggs

If you love bright, happy colors, then highlighter Easter eggs are for you. Plus, they just so happen to be incredibly easy!

Decorate Easter Eggs with Highlighter Markers:

-I used these Jumbo Juicy Scented Highlighters for my bright neon eggs.

-Another option to try would be these fun Sweet-Stampers Double-Ended Scented Highlighters. With a stamp on one end and a chiseled side on the other end, you could combine doodles with stamps.

Sticker Easter Eggs

By far the easiest eggs are these sticker eggs. From fun and playful to soft and delicate, you can match your eggs stickers to just about any look and feel.

Using Stickers to Decorate Easter Eggs:

-You can either put your stickers on a blank egg or create a beautiful background with acrylic paint or watercolors.

-For the black and white sticker eggs I used the fun and colorful Coquettish Eyes and Space Note sticker packs. You can find more fun stickers that are the perfect size for eggs here.

-For a more sophisticated sticker Easter egg, combine a watercolor background with stickers like these beautiful Dear My Love stickers.
