Can you believe that it is already spring and Easter is roughly a week away? I know I can’t! This year is moving pretty quickly and with the pandemic coming to an end (speaking it into existence), could mean that you can safely get with your vaccinated and low risk family members this Easter, if you are also vaccinated. If covid-19 is not a concern for you, please disregard. Either way, I have the perfect project for you! In this post, I will share a pretty easy and fun DIY artsy Easter egg craft and a few ways to incorporate the finished product into your celebration.

Growing up in the United States, I have memories of both celebrating and not celebrating Easter. My parents tried out a few different religions and as a result my childhood was pretty non-traditional when compared to many of my friends. Because of this, I am attracted to celebrating just about any and every popular holiday! This love of celebration translates into decorating my home accordingly. Easter is no exception. Without further ado, let’s get into this DIY artsy Easter eggs craft!
Artsy Easter Egg Supplies:
- White paintable Easter eggs ( I got mine from Target)
- Wooden skewers (enough for one for each egg)
- Craft tweezers (eggs should have an existing hole, but it may need to be enlarged to fit the skewer)
- Acrylic paints
- Paint brush
- Soapy water
- Clean water
- Wipe-up towel
- Tall cup or something to hold eggs to dry
- Craft glue

Artsy Easter Egg Hunt
Get the older kids and adults involved in the Artsy Easter Egg Hunt. Paint the tips of your eggs different colors and list prizes per color. You can use your acrylic paint, permanent markers, etc. To hide the eggs, place the painted tip of the skewer in the grass, inside your planters (maybe not for young kids) and any place the egg can stand up while hiding the colored tip. The hostess will assign a prize value per color and or quantity collected. For example, if a person collects a yellow egg he/she will win a $5 gift card. Or you can require numerous eggs of the same color or unique color combinations for prizes. The sky is the limit on how to set the rules and allot the prizes. The most important part is to make memories with your family while having fun! See an example below:
