Easter is the season of chocolate, decorating eggs and family gatherings. For kids, it means holidays, hat parades, yummy food and lots of fun crafts. For parents, it means a lot of planning.
Easter egg decorating traditionally involves oodles of vinegar-based dye and even more mess. In theory it’s a fun DIY activity to enjoy with the kids, in reality… a colourful, clothes stained nightmare! This Easter, it is time to ditch the dye and have a crack at creating some of these unique, exciting and child-friendly, egg decorating ideas.

Stickers and stick-ons
Probably the most simple and fuss-free of all decorating methods, stickers can be used to bring all sorts of ideas to life. Whether you choose to create patterns, spell out words or make faces, stickers are a very quick way to achieve a wonderful look. Design By Occassion have used 3D floral stickers to create these very pretty tulip-inspired Easter eggs. (Via Design By Occassion)
Sharpies, paint pens, or even crayons!
Sharpies, paint pens and crayons are an easy way to add both colour and designs to your egg decorations. For younger ages, washable markers or crayons are the recommended choice! While you can go to town with background colours and patterns, Flax and Twine shows us that even something as simple as a drawn on facial expression can make for the most amazing of egg decorations. Adorable! (Via Flax and Twine)
