Our 5 Easy Easter Craft Ideas


1. Painting Easter Eggs (gathered.how)

Painting Easter Eggs


Painting Easter eggs is the best way to turn ordinary eggs into a vibrant explosion of colour and fun! This craft isn't just about creating egg-straordinary art; it's also great to do with family and friends at an Easter party. With only a few simple supplies and materials, some of which you can find in your cupboard at home, this is the perfect craft to relax and have fun with. 


Supplies & materials:

- Eggs

1. Take your pin and poke a hole in the top and bottom of your egg - make sure to start small and apply gentle pressure slowly. 
2. Over a bowl, blow into the holes as hard as possible to blow out the contents of the egg.
3. When all the egg is removed, you can wash it under a tap and leave it to dry.
4. Now you can start to paint!
5. Insert a cocktail stick into either hole so you can easily hold the egg while you paint.
6. To paint, we recommend using thicker paint to ensure maximum pigment.

8. Once you're done decorating your egg, leave it to dry.

3. Now cut out two big ears and two little ears.
4. Glue the little ears to the big ears and set them to one side to dry.
