Easter egg decorating has always been my favorite Easter tradition since I was a kid. My grandma and mom were NEVER too busy to make time to make a fun (and memorable) mess decorating eggs with us … and it’s something that stands out to me to this day. They had such fun Easter egg decorating ideas for kids. Our family didn’t just dip eggs in colored water, either. We did the whole thing: we painted, glued, and taped. We started by blowing out the eggs (if you’ve never done this, Red Ted Art has a GREAT tutorial on how to do it.) It’s totally worthwhile because your eggs last forever, or at least for several years. I still have many of mine from childhood!
(Actually, you can’t tell how badly it’s broken in this picture. I know it’s just a thing, and I should let it go, but I just love the memories attached to it. I did a good job of remembering it was just a thing when my husband crunched it earlier this year.)
My point is it lasted for 20 years because it was blown out. And if you’re gonna put this kind of effort into your eggs, you might want to be able to hang on to some of those masterpieces!
