Have Fun And Get Creative This Easter

Easter is a very egg-citing time for kids. As well as devouring large amounts of chocolate, it’s the perfect time to decorate and hunt for Easter eggs.

Colouring eggs is a symbol of Easter so now if the ideal time to get those creative juices flowing and there are endless decorating ideas out there which can lead to egg-cellent results.

If you decide to simply add a uniform coat of colour to dye an egg this Easter, this can be done easily by filling a container with a mixture of water, vinegar and food colouring. After just a few minutes, carefully removing the egg will reveal a festive egg with a colourful, coated finish.

Beyond a uniform egg colouring, decorating eggs often merely involves using everyday stationery items like paint markers and washable pens as well as fabric and ribbons.

In fact egg shells make the ideal canvas for creating some interesting and fun artistic creations so here’s some ideas for starters. Amongst our favourite creations we’ve found are the ‘doodle Easter eggs’ illustrated by Alisa Burke who used merely a tried and trusted black Sharpie marker pen to create some very simple, yet pretty eggs.

Alternatively covering an egg with adhesive and dipping it in sprinkles can produce a stunning finish.

Sticking thin strips of coloured tape on eggs also creates a stunning visual effect as illustrated by Miss Honeybird.

The Easter school holidays are the ideal opportunity to undertake some egg works of art to keep children amused, but we also think that adults will enjoy it too!
