I have been trying to decide how we would decorate hard boiled eggs this year. Since big brother is getting older he can now get more involved in the decorating process. Because of this I wanted to be able to let him try a few different ways to decorate the Easter eggs. Painting with watercolors is one we tried. This was just right for him at 3yr. Watercolors are great because you get pretty eggs with no messy dye.
Paint eggs with watercolors
What you need:
hard boiled eggs
cup of water
paper plate, egg carton, or ice cube tray to set the eggs on
and maybe some wipes.
What to do:
Put eggs on an ice cube tray (flipped upside down). Give the kids watercolors and a small cup of water. Let them wet the paint brush and paint their egg.
I laid paper towels down to help control any mess that might be made.
This is a fun way to let the kids create their own works of art on the eggs. Give them the supplies and then let them take over.
I had a lot of fun watching him have so much fun with this easy activity. In the end we had some cool looking eggs.
