Skip the artificial colors and use red cabbage and onion skins to color your eggs. The organic shapes are actually made by pressing flowers and leaves against the eggs and securing with pantyhose and a twist tie before submerging in vegetable tinted water. Get the full tutorial here.

Paint Pen Eggs

Grab a paint pen or chalk marker and a carton of brown eggs and get creative. Polks dots, zig-zags, or sweet messages are all fun ways to decorate your non-traditional Easter eggs.

Raid the craft supplies for glue and glitter, and let the kids go to town. Unless you want to bedazzle the entire house, we recommend sending them out on the patio for this crafty activity.

Kids of all ages will love decorating hard boiled eggs with colorful puffy paints, which can be found at most craft stores. Practice on paper first, until you’re confident with your painting skills. Then let your inner artist run free.

Stickers and Markers

It really doesn’t get any easier than stickers and markers. Plus, the cleanup is easy as can be. Just make sure the eggs are cooled completely after boiling so the stickers won’t peel or come off.
