Chalkboard Eggs are the perfect DIY for your kiddos.
They are so fun to make and display each year.
Your kiddos will have a blast creating their one of a kind masterpieces on these tiny canvases.
I have used these eggs as place setting markers.
Or……display them in a cute bunny ear napkin.
You can even hot glue a ribbon loop on the them and hang them from an Easter tree.

Wet paper towel
Cardboard or foam
- After blowing out the eggs, place a skewer in each egg.
- Stick the sharp end into cardboard or foam to hold the egg steady.
- Spray each egg (Make sure you shake the can well) with chalkboard paint.
- Gently mist the eggs to keep the paint from leaving drip marks on the egg.
- Allow the eggs to dry and touch up with paint as needed to make sure that the entire egg is generously covered with paint.
- To ensure that the chalk adheres to the egg, using a chalk paint pen, cover the entire egg with chalk.
- Wipe the chalk off with a wet paper towel.
- You are now ready to create your masterpiece.
- Place the eggs back on the skewer into foam or cardboard to dry. Or lay them sideways in the carton to completely dry.
Tips for Painting the DIY Chalkboard Eggs
- When painting each side of the egg, allow one side to dry completely before attempting to paint the other side.
- Use a Q-tip, dipped in water, to clean up around the painting to get a crisp, clean look.
- Use a hair dryer on cool setting to speed up the drying process.
- Plant your pinky finger on the side of the egg where there is no paint to give added stability in painting the tiny surface.
- Spray the eggs with a clear sealer to preserve the art for years to come.
This DIY is the perfect craft for kids’ birthday parties, Sunday School DIY, and/or Easter Egg Hunt.
You can also display the kids’ Easter egg artwork in your spring tablescapes for years to come!
