DIY Emoji Easter eggs for kids

My children love emojis so much that it was the theme for my son’s recent birthday party (find out more about our emoji birthday party here). So I thought it would be fun to incorporate it into our Easter decorations. We love Easter – with warmer weather, longer days and the promise of chocolate – what’s not to love!

You will need:
box of ceramic Easter eggs from Hobbycraft.
Chalkola Chalk Pens
Pinty Plus Chalk Paint Spray in Mustard

How to make DIY Emoji Easter eggs for kids:

There were four ceramic eggs in the box, all with a handy little tag for hanging. The eggs were white so the first thing I did was paint them yellow using Pinty Plus Chalk Paint Spray in Mustard. I used this colour on our Easter crate and it’s really pretty.

I hung them from the washing line and sprayed them.

This gave them a really subtle colour and they were touch dry in just 20 minutes.

Then it was time to decorate the eggs. I used Chalkola Chalk Pens which are quite quick and easy to use, you can see an earlier make using them here.

I picked our favourite emojis and drew them on. They look pretty cute in an egg box but I can also thread the loop and hang them from our seasonal tree.

There were only 4 eggs in the box which restricted me slightly to which emojis I made. My son really wants to make some too so I think I might try spray painting some polystyrene eggs and seeing if the Chalkola pens would work on those too.
