Oh so many lovely Easter eggie ideas! I must admit I haven’t dyed eggs for many, many years so it’s time to get into it with my boys this year. Before we do all the pretty stuff, let’s check in with Martha Stewart for some boiling and dyeing basics.
A muffin tray is a cool way to dye them without a whole lotta mess. It also means you can use a great range of colours all at once. Once dyed you can simply decorate them with a Sharpie.
Now for the really fun stuff!
We are loving the latest looks in dyed eggs with these cool messages (a fun idea for lunch boxes too) and fab dipped white eggs (note: white eggs are a bit tricky to find in Australia).
Black & white – these would be fun at any time of the year. I am especially loving the blackboard eggs - you simply need to add two coats of blackboard paint to your eggs then decorate with chalk or chalk pen however you like!
String eggs - Did you ever make an Easter Egg basket out of sugar water, string and a balloon back in primary school? Well now you can pass on the craft to your kiddies. Check out the tutorial here.
Paper collage eggs – this is an easy peasy (express) craft idea for littler ones however you could easily adapt it and add more detail for older kids. Check out the tutorial here.
And finally, these little guys are a simple way to decorate eggs for those of us who just don’t have time to whip up the designs above.These fab ideas should get things started for you! We’ll have more ideas over the coming weeks. Enjoy! x

Start with this simple yet terribly fabulous robot card …
You could send it to your beloved in this hand made cute-as-ever felt envelope
Let the whole street (or world) know of your love with this gorgeous paper heart wreath hung on your front door …
This heart and hand tree is an old favourite of ours and is great for pre-schoolers.
And I just adore this decoration for above the bed. I think this could look amazing above a “grown ups” bed too!
We have loads more old favourite ideas to show your love here.
However you choose to show and celebrate your love, you enjoy it.
This is a great “work in progress” project. Just get started then work on it whenever boredom hits or time permits.
Who doesn’t LOVE a rainbow?
Follow the easy peasy tutorial here!
This is a fab idea to do with the kids for Christmas cards or gifts for the grandparents, aunties and uncles!
Just add their hand print (upside down) in white paint, draw on a face, glue on eyes and a cut out Santa hat.
A lovely little keepsake reminding us just how small their hands were the year before …
What little kid doesn’t love a reindeer and a hat, especially one they have made with their very own hands? This little gem is easy to make and sure to have your little ones prancing around in preparation for Christmas.
Look what we made today …
All you will need are some old boxes (any cardboard would do), a few little gems from the craft box (think pom poms, glitter, confetti, star stickers) and some wooden pegs.
Simply cut out* cardboard triangles (you can get a bit fancy here if you like), colour in or paint, glue on decorations of your choice and clip wooden peg to the bottom.
* Obviously littler ones would need assistance with cutting out but the rest is manageable for any age from toddlers to grown ups.
