If you’re looking out for some last minute Easter ideas, we are here for you! You’ve still got a couple of days to whip up some fun treats, set up the kids with cute crafts, print out some coloring pages, or just figure out whether the Easter eggs will be submerged in dye the classic way, or subjected to wads of yarn, sequins, or printable crowns and mustaches.

Whatever your plans for Easter, we just hope you all have fun doing it together.

And be sure not to miss our last-minute Easter idea guide, newly updated for 2017 with even more amazing ideas of all kind!

Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

Our kids wait all year for Easter egg decorating, so we don’t want to disappoint them. However simple or outrageous you want to go, we’ve got ideas for you. Hey, we get it — some of you like all your eggs solid and simple, some like glitter and googly eyes, and then there are those of you who will be superheroes to your own kids if you let them make Avengers eggs. As for our kids? We’re stocking up on green dye and black Sharpies for a bowlful of Minecraft Creeper eggs.
