Painting Easter Eggs without Mess

We decided to try the easy and messyless way of painting eggs that No Time for Flashcards introduced. The idea is simple: pour paint in plastic bags, drop in the egg, and rub it. This is how our eggs turned out:


Happy Easter!



  1. So clever! But wouldn’t the paint seep through into the eggs and color them? We do have red hard boiled eggs with red colouring on the shells for baby showers but the red colouring usually seep through.

    1. It didn’t seem to seep through, we have eaten all the eggs too!

  2. Crafts inside plastic bags – perfect!

    I tried to get this going today, but my two wanted their eggs fried…

    1. Haha, that does create a bit of a challenge! Scrambled eggs with some food colouring in a plastic bag might be interesting tooπŸ˜‰

      1. Hm… yes… next time?πŸ™‚

        (I wonder if they’d still eat it? Or eat it better?)

        1. Let me know how it goes if you end up trying it. CHildren can be unpredictable…

  3. Beautiful! What a great idea! What kind of paint did you use?

    1. Just acrylic ones in a tube so that it was easy to squirt the paint in the bag.

  4. Great idea! Do you use real eggs or plastic ones?

    1. Real boiled once. We just ate them tooπŸ™‚

  5. That looks fun, it looks like you dropped them in several different bags! So tell me, was it really any neater?πŸ™‚

    1. It really was! Kids just poured different colours into one bag, I closed the zip lock, and then they shaked and moved the bags with an egg in each also looking at the colours being mixed.

      1. Ah! Okay, I thought you had several bags of different colors set up! Obviously I didn’t go read the link you left! ahahahah. I’m awful some days!πŸ™‚
        Hey – Happy Easter!!

        1. One can’t read all the links, but actually she did yse multiple bags but lazy me didn’tπŸ™‚

        2. And happy Easter to you too!

  6. No mess…? Where’s the fun in that?!πŸ˜‰

    1. Are you asking mum or the kids?πŸ™‚

      1. Whoever’s NOT doing the cleaning up…πŸ˜‰

        1. ExactlyπŸ™‚ but actually even kiddos liked the mixing of the colours.

  7. creative and mess-free. what’s not to like?πŸ™‚

    1. Exactly. They tasted good tooπŸ˜‰
