DIY Chalkboard Easter Eggs

Earlier this year, perhaps January or February, I was flipping through the Williams-Sonoma catalog when I came across a very cute egg decorating kit that let you paint your hollowed out eggshells with chalkboard paint. I was immediately in love with this since I throw that paint on anything but then the thought of hollowing out eggs with two toddlers and having them try to decorate eggshells without breaking the whole thing had me feeling a bit nervous. Luckily I remembered almost purchasing wooden eggs to paint for last Easter, and that got me inspired to buy them and paint for the kids to decorate!

I painted the eggs in two batches since they are a funky shape and I didn’t want the paint to stick to the surface where they were drying. I had a few leftover paper cups in my pantry, so I turned those upside down to ensure the eggs wouldn’t roll around.


Once it was dry, I pulled out the chalk, and we started decorating! The best part about these wooden eggs is that they’re perfect for toddler hands. Also, rather than regular paint which I had thought of using last year, we can decorate every day or as often as we want by using chalkboard paint. And oh the ideas are endless when you throw into the mix how many colors of chalkboard paint you can buy, and patterns you can put on with chalk!
