Getting ready for Easter with the kids at home? It’s child’s play! Organize an egg-decorating activity to keep the kids busy while you put together our easy, festive menu. The Easter Bunny will be there before you know it!
DECORATE EASTER EGGS
This activity has been around for generations, but kids still love it. Decorating Easter eggs is an indispensable activity for the season!
Prepare the eggs
Use a large needle to pierce both ends of an egg that you’ve washed and dried in advance, making sure to break the yolk. Blow into one of the holes to drain the contents, which you can save for cooking later. Rinse the shell and let it dry.
Decorate the eggs
The decorative possibilities for your little ones are almost endless!
Give them an apron (check out our tip here on how to make your own), throw some paper or an old cloth on the table, and give them different materials for decorating their eggs:
– Paint and brushes
– Googly eyes
– Construction paper
– Decorative tape
Their imagination will do the rest!
Use the eggs
Keep the contents of your eggs and use them to make a ham and maple quiche or an orange-raspberry cake for Easter. You can also keep them until the next day to make a dinner omelette with your Easter leftovers!
