It’s the day before Easter and we haven’t decorated any eggs yet. I remember it being a pretty big family activity when I was a kid, but now as an adult, I haven’t put the same energy into it. With Grandma visiting this year, though, I thought maybe we should give it a little more effort.
That means I’ve been researching all the different fun ways to decorate some hard boiled eggs this weekend. We’ve got 9 kids that will be participating, so relatively easy is my main goal. Second goal is relatively mess free. I have a feeling that won’t happen no matter what we do with 9 kids.
Here are my top 9 favorite ideas for decorating your eggs. They aren’t all super easy, and they definitely aren’t all mess free. But the end results are pretty, so really that’s all I’m looking for.
