For a patterned design like in the photo, draw on the eggs with light-coloured wax crayons.
Boil a pan of water with brown and red onion skins, then add eggs and boil until the shells are brown (it will be longer than the normal 10 mins hard boiling time).
Once they are nearly cold, rub with oil to make them shiny.
These eggs are great for Egg Rolling! It’s just as it sounds – rolling your egg (either on the flat or downhill) the furthest without it cracking!
One for the sports lovers out there! Draw, colour and cut out your shirt shapes (use paper or card) and add the design of your favourite teams. Draw faces on the players and position on either astroturf or grass inside a box. The box can then be decorated with posts and flags and maybe even a crowd! This can also be adjusted to football or hockey!
Let the kids use their imagination with this one – they can raid the recycling to find accessories! Last year, my Mini Mumbler created ‘Eggton’ (which is where Humpty lives apparently!)
The perfect Easter theme! Use pink tissue paper to cover the body, cotton wool for the legs and tail and a biro for the eyes and nose! Minimal parent involvement needed!
How can you pick your favourite emoji? Well with this one you don’t have to! For emoji eggs, all you need is yellow and white paint (or use food colouring) and felt pens!
