The kids will use a paintbrush to paint colors on the eggs. If they want several colors on the eggs, it’s best to use the paintbrush!

#3: Puffy Paint Easter Eggs

Place an egg inside each section! Cover the egg entirely with the mix you created for each color. You can use gloves or a spoon to do this so your kid’s hands don’t get stained from the food coloring.

Let the eggs sit for 15-20 minutes! The longer they sit, the better they will turn out.

Run them under cool water and pat dry with a paper towel! Check out your awesome Easter eggs.
