With Easter less than two weeks away, it’s a safe bet you’re getting flooded with egg decorating ideas. There’s no limit to what you can do with an oval white canvas. Turn eggs into playful characters like pirates, colorful fruits, adorable doll faces, or sea creatures like mermaids and even Narwals! Or characterize them into cute children’s book characters. These creative ways to decorate eggs are a fun way for kids to celebrate Easter. And if you aren’t sure of your artistic abilities – not to worry – many of these ideas include detailed instructions using simple materials like paint and markers to get you over the hump.
