We used oil pastels on our Easter eggs and the kids were amazed at the bright beautiful eggs they made. They were a lot of fun to make and the result was stunning! Best of all this was such a simple way to do Easter egg decorating.

How We Did It

Oil Pastel Easter Egg Decorating
You can use any egg dye you would like for this. I just made a simple one with 3/4 cup hot water, 2 tsp of vinegar and a few drops of food color. Very basic.

I had the kids draw right on the eggs with the oil pastels. The eggs were a little warm still and it seemed to make the color even more vibrant and bold.

They loved drawing right on the eggs and were so proud of each one they made. After making a dozen eggs Emma asked me to hard boil some more eggs!

Once we had our egg art complete they went right in our mugs full of color.

The kids liked to keep checking until they saw their desired color.

I think these were the prettiest eggs we have ever made!
