{10 fun & easy ideas for coloring easter eggs with kids}

With 9 days to go before my baby arrives, I'm trying to get everything in order for Easter.  Some things we'll still do Easter weekend, and others we're doing just a bit earlier, to make sure we won't miss them due to all the excitement headed our way next week!

Tonight we're coloring eggs for Family Night, and the eggs are boiling away on the stove.  It's one of my favorite  Easter activities to do with my kids, and they always love it.  I'm kind of a low maintenance girl when it comes to dyeing Easter eggs.  I love doing things that are easy, don't require a lot of supplies, but are creative and fun. I've seen some fabulous ideas out there--beautiful and intricate and lovely--but those are ones that I'll save for myself to do!   Simple is still my favorite way to go, especially when it comes to kids. I've collected some really great ideas that I've come across and loved--that are either specifically for kids, or are easily adapted to be so. Most of them require few supplies but lots of creativity...PERFECT!

{Chalkboard Easter Eggs--Oleander & Palm}

These would need to be prepped ahead of time...sprayed with chalkboard paint first, and be totally dry.  I just think this looks so fun for kids, to draw with chalk on eggs!!!

{Sparkly Dot Easter Eggs, Domestifluff}

I'm a polka dot girl, so I have to admit, this is one of my favorites.  :)  What I love about this idea is that she not only includes the directions for glitter, but also a kid-friendly option using decorative sugar!  What a GREAT idea!!!

{Painted Eggs, Punchbowl}

I think these are super cute, and how easy!  Color eggs like normal, then just use acrylic paint and paintbrush to create different designs!  When you use washable paint, it's most definitely kid-friendly!

{EASY decorated eggs...perfect for toddlers}

Who says you have to dye the eggs? Sometimes with very small children, you want to skip the mess altogether, but still want to continue the tradition of decorating eggs together.  How about just decorating plain, white hardboiled eggs with crayons?  What a fun and unique surface for a little one, plus super easy and best clean-up around!  They won't know the difference, they'll have a great time, and you really can't get any more low-key.

{Rice Krispie Easter Egg Treats, Key Ingredient}

Okay, okay--these have nothing to do with dyeing eggs, but they are so cute I just couldn't resist!  What a fun treat to have anytime during the Easter season!
