Get ready for Easter this year with touches of spring around the home. A bit of crafting goes a long way, and these colorful clay eggs will make part of a gorgeous Easter centerpiece, all made by yourself and your kids. Also, perfect if you do not want to use real eggs as Easter decoration. 

Supplies:

  • air dry clay (my favorite is this one by DAS)
  • paint (tempera or finger paint for kids, acrylic will hold, nail polish is an option)
  • paintbrush



How To Make Air Dry Easter Egg Decoration

1) Open your package of air drying clay - you only need a portion of it, better work in small chunks to avoid drying it too quickly.
2) Knead the clay a bit to soften it.
3) Then pinch off a small portion and then shape it into an egg-shape. Easy peasy!
4) Leave the eggs for a day or two to dry.

Once the eggs were dry, we painted them. So much fun! We used tempera paint, and the paintbrush was only needed at the start. Later on, the major portion of painting was made by rolling the eggs in paint directly, and smudging paint all over the hands. If you intend to do the same, then tempera will be best, for toddlers finger paint.

If you are after a more permanent solution, and probably with older kids, use acrylic paint or nail polish.
