I love how our have turned out this year. We bought white eggs to start with, boiled them and then decorated them with electrical tape, make sure you smooth the tape at the edges. Then we soaked them in food colouring mixed with lemon juice and water. To dry them I stuck some pins into a piece of foam to make rests, then when they were dry we peeled off the tape.
This year we won't have as many families at the egg hunt due to the quake but we have decided to make it more difficult to find the eggs by having the kids names written on them and they will only be able to collect their own eggs, the little ones with have their own sticker. Hope the weather stays nice.
There are lots of other egg decorating ideas over at hand on: as we grow
