Easter Craft: Decorate Eggs With Non-Toxic Sharpie

Permanent Marker

I sometimes decorate hard boiled eggs with faces for the children’s lunch box. Around Easter, it’s fun to decorate eggs as an activity by using a non toxic Sharpie markers.  Even though the pens are classified as non-toxic, I only use them on the shell so it doesn’t come in contact with the egg inside.  It’s easy and relative mess free.

1. Decorate the egg however you like!

–> Tip! Egg & Spoon Game!

Play an egg and spoon race with the colourful eggs in the backyard!  The fun thing is the eggs will crack if you drop them which makes the game more dramatic!

Keeping and Storing

Hard boiled eggs (to eat) need to need to stored in the refrigerator (and shouldn’t be out of the fridge for more than two hours).  If kept in their shells, the eggs will keep in the fridge for a week. *according to eatbydate.com

If you don’t plan on eating the decorated hard boiled eggs, display them somewhere in the house at room temperature for a few days before throwing out.
