Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

Talk about multitasking: bubble packaging can be a protective packing material, a noisemaker, or a stress reliever. It can hold your Easter eggs in place for decorating too. And now, it can even help you paint them.

What you'll need

  • Eggs
  • Acrylic paint
  • Bubble packaging
Helpful Tip:

To get the fun under way, first boil your eggs for 15 minutes and then let them cool completely. Protect your work area with newspaper and set out the supplies needed for each technique.


Note: If you plan to eat your Easter eggs, decorate them only with food-grade dyes. Click here for the USDA's tips on Easter and Passover egg safety.
