Easter Egg decorating

This Easter party is all about the eggs! Let your kids create their most inventive (and colorful!) creations. Simply prep colored eggs ahead of party time. At the party, give each child a carton and let them hop to decorating. We set out lots of fun decorating supplies at the craft table including sequins, chenille stems (or pipe cleaners), googly eyes, markers, and cardstock.

Keep the party decor simple! String up Easter egg balloons decorated with washi tape and stickers. Top the table with bright plastic or paper tablecloths and set out bowls of colorful crafts supplies.

Egg-citing Party Favors

This Easter party is all about the favors! Each kid gets to take home a carton of their decorated eggs and play show and tell with their bright creations. Save up your egg cartons starting a couple weeks before party time.

Looking for even more fun? Have each child paint and decorate their egg cartons. Add a personal touch by decorating each carton with their names.

Fruit and Veggie Eggs

Easter egg fruit

Create a whole patch of adorable fruit and veggie eggs with simple paper toppers. To create, have the kids fold cut construction-paper leaves and stems. Attach them to each egg with glue dots. Add a cut chenille stem and finish with sweet permanent marker faces.

Silly Egg Monsters

Get those googly eyes! These adorable egg monsters are the cutest Easter craft we've ever seen. Create a mob of these friendly creatures with colored markers, chenille stems, and craft eyes. Show the children how to create one and then let their imaginations run wild. Encourage them to get creative with colorful arms, legs, hair, and teeth.

Colorful Sea Critters

Easter Egg sea life

Create an ocean adventure with a few simple craft supplies. These decorated Easter eggs are made from cut felt pieces, glue dots, and chenille stems. Precut the felt before party time and let the kids mix and match to create their underwater wildlife. Give kids something to work off of by making a few eggs ahead of time like these fun sea creatures.

Sparkling Party Eggs

These shimmery Easter eggs are dipped in glue and covered with shiny sequins. Set out small bowls of glitter and sequins for party time.  Separate them by color and size so each kid can customize their egg. Have each child carefully dip or brush their eggs with glue.

Get creative with color! Leave a few eggs partially dyed for a fun ombre effect.

Easter Treats

It wouldn't be a party without delicious Easter treats! From bunny-shaped desserts to fun Easter recipes, we've got food ideas perfect for a party. Set up a simple food buffet away from the egg dyeing area. Keep them separate until the kids are ready to break for a snack!
