How we did it:

Materials List

  1. hard boiled eggs
  2. watercolor crayons
  3. washi tape
  4. paint brushes or sponge painters
  5. water
  1. Gather your materials.

  2. One super easy method is using washi tape to decorate the eggs.  Try tearing shorter and longer pieces of tape to create different designs.

  3. To get extra crafty, try combining the washi tape with the watercolor crayons.  To start, make some basic designs with the washi tape and keep some white space blank.

  4. Using the watercolor crayons, decorate the remaining white space on the eggs.

  5. Try applying some water on your drawing to watch the colors blend together.  Allow the eggs to dry.

  6. When the eggs are dry, peel off the washi tape to see the fun patterns!

  7. Lastly, you can use the watercolor crayons on their own to decorate the eggs.  Blend the colors with a little bit of water.  The combinations are endless and oh-so-simple.
