Watercolor Eggs

Beautiful and easy to make, these watercolor eggs are an activity everyone can enjoy. 

I can't believe it's only a week left until Easter. Seriously, Spring is flying by! If you're looking for a fun Easter activity that involves eggs, you can make these fun watercolor eggs. These were fun to do with my 3 year old, but older kids could be more creative with them. And I really enjoyed sitting on the patio with my coffee creating these little cuties.

For supplies you will need: watercolor paints (I just used the cheap kid ones), hard boiled eggs, water, paintbrush and watercolor pencils. I used General's Kimberly Watercolor Pencils since I already had those.

There are several ways to make designs. Play around with them to see which way you like the best. For some of my eggs, I drew simple designs on them and then painted watercolor over the top in the same color. I really liked the way this turned out. 

For other eggs, I painted them first and then before they were completely dry I drew on them with the pencils. This was fun too.

Remember they don't have to be perfect. I let some of my paints drip and run to create a pretty look.
Once your eggs are dry use them as table decorations are hid them for your kids to search for.

Fun for kids and adults alike.

 Have fun and happy Spring!

Pin It!
