How To Make A Painted Easter Egg Head In 5 Easy Steps

Posted on the 22 April 2011 by Buyasyouview @BuyAsYouView

With Easter just around the corner and bored kids constantly nagging you for fun and exciting holiday activities, why not spend some time creating and decorating some Easter Egg Heads? It’s fun, easy to do and will keep the kids occupied for hours (especially if you can encourage them to make an entire football team!). So, here’s what you need:

How to make a painted Easter egg head in 5 easy steps!

  • Hen eggs
  • Sharp sewing needle
  • Paints
  • Paper towels
  • Small paint brush
  • Materials
  • Glue
  • Bowl
  • Egg cups / box

Step 1

Once you have your hen eggs, make sure you wash them thoroughly before you begin as you’re going to be putting your lips on them and you don’t want to spend your Easter weekend poorly!

Step 2

Next, get a fair sized needle with a sharp point and a bowl to blow the contents of the egg into. Take the needle and make a small hole in the narrow end of the egg. In the opposite end, make a slightly larger hole, push the needle in quite far and move it about to ensure that you break up the membrane around the egg yolk (otherwise you will never manage to get it out!).

Step 3

Now hold the egg securely and blow through the smaller hole so that the inside of the egg comes out through the larger hole into the bowl – simple! At least it sounds it but don’t be surprised if there are a few breakages and spillages along the way!

Step 4

Once you’ve completely emptied the egg, you need to wash it out thoroughly to ensure that your beautifully painted eggs don’t begin to smell in a few days time! Whilst the eggs are fairly strong, be careful when you run the tap around the holes as they tend to be weaker at these points. Dry off your egg with a paper towel.

Step 5

All that’s left to do now is paint your eggs! Sit the egg in an egg cup or box and paint and decorate with bright colours, stick on bits of materials for hair or clothes – the sky is the limit! Finally, remember to use the egg contents to make a tasty omelette!

We hope you’ve enjoyed our guide – remember to post your painted Easter egg pictures to our Facebook page!

Happy Easter!
