Spring is happening. Easter is coming. Annnnnnd the upcoming weather this weekend seems to be clueless about both!

Luckily, we’ve compiled some very cute ideas on how to stay busy. We want to help guide your egg decorating + give suggestions for lots of indoor fun (like a scavenger hunt with adorable, printable clues!). We know this won’t make the snow any better ... but hopefully we can help distract you from it.

PAINT + MARKERS (Pro Tip: Use a hair dryer to speed up the process!)

An updated flair lended to a traditional process creates art! This is an especially good technique to use if you have brown eggs.

SHARPIE EGGS

We do not recommend eating the eggs that you use Sharpie pens on. But lets be honest, this is more about the process of creating than the outcome of eating, right?!

However, if you love this idea and do not want eggs to go to waste, we found EDIBLE FOOD PENS here.

SCAVENGER HUNT

We love this idea SO MUCH. Use it for Easter, or any random day when you have run out of ideas to keep the kids busy during quarantine.

TISSUE PAPER EASTER EGGS

This is our favorite way to decorate eggs. We use Modge Podge to adhere, but have been known to dilute regular glue with water to make our own.
