Daylight Savings has come and gone, St. Patrick’s Day too, and the only thing we’ve got left to do to make the arrival of Spring official is to celebrate Easter, hooray! Get a jump on that business by planning out your Easter egg decorating strategy now. Decorating Easter eggs is one of my favorite activities to get the kids involved with. We always have such a blast in the middle of making the hugest mess.
You could definitely go the traditional Paas route, no shame there, but if you want to shake things up a little I’ve got a few fabulous ideas for you. Click through the gallery below for 17 of the ideas I’m considering for our own eggs this year.

Calligraphy Eggs 9 of 17
If you're super talented you could freehand these, but if not, try using the free template instead. You'll need some temporary tattoo paper (yeah, that's a thing) and eggs too, of course.
