So Mason is off to his first ever Easter egg hunt this coming weekend, and for probably the first time we are getting into the spirit of the celebration. This involves a lot of eggs, both of the chocolate variety and… er… normal, variety. As my boy has a somewhat short attention span, we’ve needed to be varied in how we approach the tradition of decorating eggs. We’ve tried so many different ways of doing it. We posted earlier in the week about Decorating Eggs with Shaving Foam, which was super fun and very messy. Today, it’s egg decorating with nail polish.

No we’re not just painting them like you’d paint your nails (though that is an option) but instead, we’re using a technique to produce an excellent marbled finish with minimal effort.

Is it even Easter if you’ve not decorated an egg of some sort? Alright I personally don’t do it so much now, but I know as a kid it is all part of the build up to the day the rabbit pays a visit. As an adult, there are a variety of ways you can decorate your eggs successfully without too much drama. Toddlers however? Hmm. Not so much. The best way to let them decorate eggs in my opinion is to let them get as messy as possible. Hence, we have our comprehensive guide to shaving foam Easter egg decorating.

I know what you’re thinking. Shaving foam and toddlers is a recipe for disaster and yes, you’re probably right. However, when supervised, this is an excellent way to get your little ones introduced to egg decorating. It’s also just a really fun, sensory play activity for them too. There is not a child on the planet who doesn’t like messing around with shaving foam. That, my friends, is a fact.

Not a chocolate person? No worries. We've got a roundup of the best alternative Easter eggs for 2019.

With Easter coming up, most households simply cannot move for chocolate. Eggs of all shapes and sizes fill the supermarket shelves and we’re almost force-fed sugar and cocoa. Tiresome huh? No, I know, not really. Believe it or not there are people who do not like (or cannot eat) chocolate – and they need to celebrate Easter too! Don’t worry, you can still plan the best Easter for those who aren’t down for a chocolate egg. We’ve scoured the internet for the best alternative Easter eggs that you can get this year. 

We’ve tried to vary this list as much as we can to make sure that one of these alternative Easter eggs will be perfect for your intended recipient, regardless of their age. It turns out, there’s not that many decent quality alternative Easter eggs out there… gap in the market maybe? Get your thinking caps on!
