10 awesome ways to decorate easter eggs

I am sure that many of us will be dyeing Easter eggs with our kiddos this weekend…. but maybe (like me) you are looking to do something a little more special than just creating solid-colored eggs with the good ‘ole Paas kit? But at the same time you don’t want to go overboard and create a 9-hour project for yourself either? Well- I’ve rounded up some great posts that I found for simple Easter eggs that look awesome- but don’t require a lot of mess, time, or supplies! Here’s 10 awesome ways to decorate Easter Eggs!

#1. Dye Easter Eggs with Shaving Cream (or even Cool Whip!)

This is another great idea from A Thrifty Mom- and all you need are the eggs and crayons. This project is best with older kids because the eggs themselves are hot (which is what allows the crayons to melt). But easy and super awesome!

#7 Polka Dot Easter Eggs
