Easter is coming soon, it’s an excellent time for kids to have fun with parents decorating Easter Eggs. When I was a child, it was always an adventure to try new ways of decorating Easter eggs, every year in some new, unusual way – and see what the result of the creative process I was part of is. I’m sure the nature of children didn’t change much in spite of the fact that I was growing up in the previous Millenium(!).
Anyway, if you didn’t spend time with your kids decorating Easter eggs before, you should give it a try this year and prepare all the materials you need in advance. Family traditions make relationships stronger, so let’s take a look at some fantastic ideas for decorating Easter eggs that you can try this year!

1. Decorating Easter Eggs as Chicks
These Easter eggs are my number one, they are so cute, fun and can be done in about 30 minutes!

4. Easter Eggs made of Colorful Gelatin
You will need these Plastic Eggs and gelatin of four different colors, like Jell-O (pack of 4: Green Apple, Cherry, Watermelon, Blue Raspberry) and a plastic syringe.
It’s pretty simple recipe but takes some time because you’ll have to refrigerate each layer or jello for 10-15 minutes one after another. You can’t add the new layer before the previous is completely still, so the colors don’t mix with each other.
On the top of each plastic egg make holes big enough to use the syringe, using a knife will break the plastic; so better use thin scissors or an awl. Note: every second layer of gelatin was mixed with Greek yogurt to create a matte color.
