Easter is just around the corner and decorating eggs is a favorite amongst young children. There are several different ways to decorate an Easter egg but I found this project very fun and popular for pre-school children.

Chalkboard Easter Eggs

Step 1: Take wooden eggs and place in an empty egg carton.
Step 2: Paint each wooden egg with chalkboard paint (adult supervision is needed for young children) and let them dry in empty egg carton for 1 hour. If you need a second coat of paint repeat the steps. I found that making sure the top half of the egg was completely dry before turning the egg upside down and painting the bottom half is essential in making sure the entire egg has an even coat of paint.
Step 3: Let Eggs dry completely before decorating. Approximately 1-2 hours.

Step 4: Use chalk markers to let the kids’ imaginations come to life while decorating their eggs.
If you don’t want to buy the items online, they can all be found at your local craft store. These Easter eggs are cute and are fun to make. They are also fun to use as part of your Easter decor. The best part is they are 100% recyclable and can be used year after year. Maybe your grandkids can color the same eggs their parents colored years from now! I hope you choose this project for your next Easter craft.
