Easter Egg Painting Tips and Tricks

Easter Egg Painting Tips

So you scored an amazing deal on a few dozen eggs and you're ready to paint them!

One of the most loved traditions around Easter is painting eggs. Not only do you end up with very interesting, unique and timely decorations for your home and garden, but it's also a fun activity for everyone in the family to experience together...dyed eggs along with painted hands, arms and all.

The important rule when it comes to egg dying: boil the egg first! Many an accident (and subsequent crying child tantrum and sloppy mess) have occurred by accidentally using the eggs in the wrong carton. After you boil the eggs, let them cool for at least half an hour in the fridge. This is so that the paint will hold to the egg shell, and so little children don't have trouble handling and holding warm eggs.

Of course you could use dye kits, crayons and other prepared packages for making cool creation eggs. But you can also use acrylic paint that you have on hand for kid crafts, or grab a set of small paint bottles from the craft store. A cheaper alternative would be to use old nail polish bottles that have been sitting in your bathroom cabinet for years. Just be sure to have your bottle of remover handy, in case the kids paint more than the eggs and their fingernails.

The best brushes to use for egg painting are the finest, thinnest brushes, so you can create more intricate and delicate patterns on your eggs. Small stamps can also be used with the paints as well. And lastly, don't forget about the glitter and perhaps stickers for younger children.

We hope you enjoy creating eggs-travagant creations with your family this Easter holiday.
