Fingerprint Decorated Easter Eggs

These fingerprint decorated Easter eggs are a very simple craft to do. Although BB was to young to do these ones with us this year, hopefully next year he will be old enough to join in with the fun. YC and EC certainly enjoyed themselves. This is the sort of craft where you can set it up and tell them to just go crazy and create.

Make sure you follow my Easter board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

You will need:

  • Eggs*
  • Ink pads
  • Pens
  • Wet wipes

* We used polystyrene eggs from Hobbycraft. If you are using really eggs, I would hard-boil them first.

I simply set out the supplies for YC and EC for when they got home from school and let them get on with it.

For some of them we created scenes by turning our fingerprints into animals or flowers.

On other ones we just used our fingerprints to create cool patterns and designs. YC liked to smudge her ink so that it created an even spread.

EC’s finished eggs

Have lots of wet wipes or flannels on hand for cleaning fingers (and the table) on.

Just be careful when picking them up because the ink doesn’t always completely dry, especially if little ones have used a lot of ink.
