sharpie journal eggs
Naples Families! I's time for Easter crafts! We scoured our favorite web sites and found some really cute Easter egg ideas for you to try. The difficulty ranges from very easy to "need artistic talent to pull off" but you're sure to find something in here to keep your entire family happy.
1. Speckled Eggs. We loved these simple eggs in natural colors. Perfect for older children who are beyond the pink and yellow eggs phase or those of us without little ones in the house. So easy and pretty!
2. These hand-drawn eggs are from the blog Confetti Sunshine. Use food safe markers to dot, draw little lines and arrows and create a pretty design on your egg. Lovely craft for slightly older children and teens.
3. REALLY artistic Sharpie eggs. If you're super artistic or have a child who is, these eggs are the ticket for you. The designer uses Sharpie markers to "journal" on eggs, bubble wrap printing and other imaginative ideas to create really beautiful eggs that are worthy of being in a centerpiece. Not sure that you'd want to eat these after they have had Sharpie on the shells but if you blow them out first, you can keep them for next year!
4. Tie Dye Eggs. Another Sharpie craft, use the pens to draw on the eggs and then use an eye dropper to drop rubbing alcohol onto the egg to create a gorgeous tie dye design. This is a bit messy but even little kids can get pretty designs randomly.
5. Watercolor Eggs. Check out this "how to" for details on creating beautiful, soft watercolor eggs. It's easy and kids will love playing with dripping the dyes onto the eggs. If you give them complementary colors, you can be sure you won't end up with all grey or brown eggs. We also suggest giving them thin disposable gloves and covering your work surface with a LOT of plastic.
