Dyeing eggs with food colouring is a popular option, or there's these marbled eggs that you can actually eat. When it comes to egg decorating this is one of the simplest ways to get beautiful eggs, and it's something that kids of all ages will enjoy.

Method
While you can decorate eggs straight out of the carton, usually people prepare them one of two ways. You can hard-boil the eggs, or you can use a method called egg-blowing. Whichever you choose, once you've got the egg prepared you just need to dry them and start drawing.

Sharpies are a good pen to use, they come in a range of colours and dry almost immediately. These days you can also get generic brands of similar markers that will work just as well.

As long as the eggs are dry, you can start with any design you like. Older kids can get creative, while even younger kids can have fun decorating with their unique scribbles.

Here's some inspiration for you:

Try and encourage your kids to come up with their own designs that express themselves.

For a fun Easter breakfast, serve up soft boiled eggs with fun designs. Even though you don't eat the shell, it's best not to use permanent markers on something you're going to eat. Instead use edible ink markers. They're not as bright and vibrant, but at least you don't have to worry about anything toxic getting on to your food.
