You know what I hate most about painting Easter eggs? And I’ve talked to other moms… This is a common problem. The fact that my little ones think it’s super funny to break eggs all over my table. Well, not with this craft no siree! I love how this craft incorporated the use of paper mache eggs because I had not even thought of doing that! (despite wishing my eggs wouldn’t break every year) The added tissue paper makes the eggs so bright, pretty, and extremely durable for easter games and decorations. You’re going to love this cute craft!

Easter is almost here, which means spring is in the air! Here in Michigan, our family literally came out of an almost SIX.. month hibernation. We had 13 snow days this year. Which, to put this into perspective growing up I was lucky to get one! These watercolor floral eggs turn out so elegant, and pretty! Plus, they are extremely easy to make with basically just the right paint needed to make them. These are the perfect garden decoration, and will put you in the mood for the warmer weather ahead!
Bunny Easter Eggs DIY

After you dye the eggs using food coloring it’s essentially just taking a sharpie and drawing the bunny on, and your kids are sure to love them! This is great school craft, or if you’re in an area like me where it’s 50 degrees one day and 12 degrees and snowing the next, a great craft for the days you have to stay inside. Show somebunny you love them!

These Disney Pixar eggs are so incredibly fun, your kids are sure to love them!

These DIY Easter Eggs are extremely decorative and would look perfect in an entryway. Your kids can help with you with this, but in my opinion, this is a “mommy” craft.

This is one of my favorite DIY Easter egg crafts I have seen for sure!
Dye Easter Eggs With Blueberries
These Easter Eggs dyed with blueberries turn out Eggstremely gorgeous. They almost look like they are stained with watercolor but not very precisely on purpose due to the white specks that give it an even more attractive look. These take a bit more preparation than just using dye or paint, but when you see the finished product you will know it’s worth it!

We made five of these little ninjas and hid them with the rest of the kid’s eggs in the Easter Egg hunt we have in our backyard yearly. It was a complete hit and I would recommend these to anyone!

Preparation for this is a little more intensified than other DIY Easter egg dyeing crafts, but as Booker T Washington once said “nothing ever comes to one worth having, except as a result of hard work!”
