Easter Egg Design for Tweens
We love decorating eggs for Easter. The possibilities are endless, especially today with such a wide range of craft products available. Our tweens love getting in on the action too when it comes to decorating, but were looking for something a little different than traditional colors and methods.
Easter Egg Designs For Tweens
The great thing about these pre-painted chalkboard eggs is that there is no prep work needed. Simply open the package and get decorating. Our kids loved the white on black contrast – they tried a few with the colored chalk markers but were happier with the results of the white on black.
We used both stick chalk and a white chalk marker. The design possibilities are only limited by your imagination. Stripes, dots, drawings, swirls and more.
How do you display your decorated eggs? Our family purchased a tuft of artificial grass that we use a centerpiece for the eggs on our table. Hint: the grass also makes for a great place for the eggs to ‘dry’ if you use a chalk marker.
- Vase – repurpose a vase and instead of filling it with flowers try these chalkboard eggs – they will definitely be the talk of the table.
- Egg cups – yes, egg cups. Using a traditional egg cup and placing a non-tradition decorated chalkboard egg in it will create quite a contrast.
- Trays- there are some great metal trays that make perfect decorated egg displays. Add a little artificial grass or moss and create an amazing centerpiece.
