Have fun and occupy the kids by making your own Easter egg decorations
This is a fun way to occupy the kids and can be followed by them using the eggs to create Easter egg displays round the house. Or of course for the official Easter Egg Hunt. Easter decorations can be as simple or as intricate as you want to make them.
Here are some tips and ideas to get you started
Use an old sheet or newspaper on the work area to keep it from getting messy with the supplies.
Put your kids in old clothes or use an apron to cover them.
Warning – do not plan on eating the hard boiled eggs you decorate. Also ensure that you don’t use anything toxic or that could be poisonous to decorate your eggs.
