I'm pretty excited that this Easter I finally have a child that is old enough to enjoy some good old fashioned Easter Egg decorating with me! Ever since I was little I've been a pretty big fan of Easter crafts, I remember making many Easter baskets throughout my childhood. But, now that I think about it, it was probably just because I was worried that the Easter bunny would forget me if I didn't have a pretty basket! There's no way I wanted to miss out on that chocolate!
So tomorrow I'm going to 'try' to decorate some eggs with my two and a half year old (I think I'm regretting this already).
But, I couldn't wait until tomorrow, so while he was at kindy today, I made my own, and I didn't have to share! They are really easy, and just involved some things that I already had in the house. I know I'm not the first person to make washi tape Easter eggs, they've been around for a long time, but here is my take on them! Maybe they'll give you a little craftspiration to get your Easter Egg decorating happening!
All you need:
Some paint. I used some cheap water colour paint
Washi tape: just a couple of rolls, personally I love the gold and black and whites!
Eggs: of course!
I was a bit lazy and just hard boiled these ones, usually I would put a pin in each end and blow the raw egg out and then use it for making something, that I won't share with others haha.
Paint your eggs, use a egg cup or the washi tape roll to hold the egg upright so you can paint it
Cut the tape and stick how you like!
