I love that Easter falls quite late this year, because it means that the school holidays fall in the two weeks leading up to it. That means two whole weeks of crafts and themed activities with the kids!
I have been busy browsing Pinterest and some of my favorite blogs for inspiration, and thought that I would share some of the best Easter egg decorating ideas I've come across. Some of these are amazing. :-)
Aren't these cool? Subway art eggs by Lil Luna.
You can't go wrong with a bit of glitter. Love these eggs by Girl. Inspired.
Jute eggs are on my to do list for Easter decorating, so I was thrilled to find this cute tutorial by one of my favorite bloggers; Taryn from Design, Dining & Diapers.
So sweet! Polka dot eggs in pastel shades by Craftberry Bush.
Confession time. Washi tape is huge, but I don't even own any. Perhaps these adorable eggs will be the push I need to buy some. By Lovely Indeed.
Stamped eggs, used as Easter place cards. By Love Grows Wild.
I also think that these calligraphy inspired eggs by Oh Happy Day would make great place settings.
These look so simple to make and the end result is gorgeous (they look just like dragon's eggs) Created by Create. Craft Love, shared at The 36th Avenue.
Gold leaf Easter eggs by Dream A Little Bigger.
Ombre eggs - so pretty! By Ashbee Designs.
These leaf print eggs would be great fun to try with the kids. By Spoonful.com.

These polka dot Easter eggs were one of the first things I pinned after joining Pinterest! I still love them. They are from Better Homes and Gardens.
Sharpie eggs by Obviously Sweet. Love the simplicity of the black and white design.
Can you believe that these marbleized eggs were done with nail polish? By Camille Styles.
A clever (and pretty) way to use up broken egg shells. Mosaic eggs by Say Not Sweet Anne.
I have a soft spot for anything Victorian, so love these silhouette eggs by Rook No. 17.
Sweet and infinitely doable. By The Paper Cut Magazine (which can be read online).
I pretty much had this post all scheduled and ready to go when I came across Monsieur Egg by MomDot. Couldn't resist adding this little fella into the compilation!
The last Easter eggs in my compilation aren't eggs at all; they are made from balloons. But these Easter egg pinatas by Oh Happy Day are so perfect I couldn't not include them.
