Chalkboard Easter Eggs

Chalkboard Easter Eggs

With Lent here Easter is just around the corner and that means that the Easter decorations start coming out. Our egg wreath is on the door, spring mantel is put in place, and a few crafts are ready to be made. Including these chalkboard Easter eggs.

Not only are these easy to make, they’re lots of fun for the kids! And the perfect way to keep the kiddy table at Easter brunch entertained.

My kids love that they can write their own Easter egg designs on the eggs and then wipe them off and start again. And it’s a great way for the kids to practice writing their names!

2. Apply a second coat so that the eggs are fully covered and none of the egg underneath shows through. Let dry completely.

3. Hand the dried eggs over to your local artist and let them have at it! (do you see my Molly has written her name?)

These eggs also serve as the perfect place setting for your Easter brunch or dinner. Simply write each guests name on an egg and place in an egg holder or egg carton and display at the top of each place setting!
