Last Minute Easter Craft Idea

I don’t know what it’s like where you are but the weather has been very unpredictable here. We have also been struggling with no car to get around. So I thought I’d share a very simple craft idea that you can do with your children when the weather is bad or you’re having a day at home.


What You Will Need:

1 Chicken Egg per person

A saucepan of water

Felt tips or other decorative items

How To:

  1. Place eggs in a saucepan. Cover eggs with cold water but not too deep, eggs must be covered. Heat water on hob. When water boils leave to simmer for about 10 minutes.
  2. Turn heat off and allow eggs and water to cool to room temperature before removing.
  3. Let egg cool until cold.
  4. Then decorate how you wish. We found felt tips worked perfectly. You may want to paint the eggs with white paint mixed with some PVA glue first so that the pens show up properly.


The girls haven’t done this before and I’m not lying when I say they set doing this for well over 30 minutes. It allowed me to grab a shower. They really loved it and if you are experiencing weather like we are then this will be a great rainy day Easter activity.

What have you done today?
