The kids love the Spring Egg Hunt every year at their school. The school has grown so now they do multiple egg hunts. Since my kids are in different classes, it didn't surprise me that they ended up in different hunts. They put 3 classes together for each hunt (so 72 kids in each hunt). My concern was that both of the hunts they were in were at the same time on two different playgrounds. I would have to choose which to watch! After helping "hide" the eggs -72 kids each provided 24 eggs for each hunt. When you have that many eggs, you don't really hide them, you just try to spread them out.

After testing out various methods, here are our finished decorated eggs. We have painted eggs, dipped eggs, marbled eggs, and my favorites - tattooed eggs. I highly suggest just sticking tattoos on eggs. They are neat, easy, and look great.

In our quest to continue trying different ways of decorating eggs, the kids suggested we paint them. This seems like a simple and easy idea, so I grabbed the water colors and let them go to town.
The kids focused and had fun trying to paint all the way around when you are also trying not to drop the egg.
They tried holding the eggs various ways, setting the egg on the tray, and just rolling them around.
This did not turn out to be a clean project, but it was fun.
Watching the eggs dry - it's exactly as much fun as it sounds. haha
