Decorating Easter Eggs for Every Age

My three year old absolutely loved decorating Easter eggs this year. She decorated a dozen at home, some more at Gammies and is going to playgroup on Monday to decorate even more. We bought some plastic eggs and I let her go to Walmart and pick out her own Egg dyeing kit which she also enjoyed.


She ended up picking out a sponge paint kit. Which I thought was great as it was a little more time consuming than simply dyeing them one single colour and it also had stickers which was great for her younger 19 month old brother. He put stickers on his eggs and decorated them with crayons.


My daughter sponged the paint onto her eggs then we added glitter onto the wet eggs...



I found these plastic decorating eggs this year and love them! You can dye them like a regular egg, and they don't have that horrible hard boiled egg smell which I am not a fan. Last year I poked a pin hole in our eggs and blew them all out - which took forever and was no fun .
