Easter Egg Coloring and Handprint Chick Cards

2023 Crafts Creative Circle Easter

Creating memories with our little ones and making holidays feel extra special is one of our favorite things to do. Coloring Easter eggs is a fun tradition and activity to do with little ones in the Spring. There are many ways to color Easter eggs but we used whipped cream this time for a fun and tasty activity. 

Using whipped cream for Easter egg coloring is so easy, and a super effective way to dye or decorate Easter eggs for your home. 

The first step in any Easter egg dying activity is to boil your eggs. We used our Dash egg to boil our eggs. They will need to be at room temperature to begin. Once our eggs were at room temperature, we let them sit in vinegar for about ten minutes and dry. This step will help turn the colors brighter and bolder. 

Next, we placed about three spoonfuls of whip cream into a cupcake container for each egg. Our little ones enjoyed some whipped cream during this time! Then we added food coloring and mixed colors slightly. We then placed an egg in each container of the tray with whipped cream and using a spoon (and our hands) made sure the egg was entirely covered.


Let the eggs sit in the whipped cream for at least 30 minutes, the longer you leave them there the bolder the colors will be. Once you are ready, run the eggs under cool water and dry. Now it’s time to enjoy the beautiful colors and use your Easter eggs to decorate around the house! 


We also made some easy handprint chick cards to wish family a Happy Easter. This activity is easy and requires only a few materials…paint, paper, googly eyes and feathers. 

Coat your little one’s hand with a layer of yellow paint (or the color your little one’s choose) and make a handprint on a white card stock paper, be sure to hold your little one’s hand down and fingers still to make the handprint. Be sure to wipe and wash hands immediately to avoid little hands touching everything.

While you wait Let the handprint dry, cut a small triangle using orange cardstock for your chick’s nose (you can also paint the nose). Next, glue your googly eyes and feathers on each side of your chick as wings.

Lastly, write Happy Easter or any other Springtime message you’d like to send to a family member or friend.  

We truly enjoy these activities with our little ones and sharing these moments…hope you’re inspired to do so too!
