Decorating Easter eggs is one of the best parts of celebrating this hoppy springtime holiday (outranked only by the chocolate, of course). And if you love traditional Easter egg dyeing, we see you and we support you!! But for those of you who would like to venture outside of the vinegar and food coloring box, we’ve rounded up some really fun alternative options for decorating those eggs!! See our favorites below.

DIY Clay Ornaments

Frugal and Thriving may earn a small commission via affiliate links in this post. See full disclosure here.

Kristy made these DIY clay Easter egg ornaments with her daughter last year and we cannot get over how adorable they are! Plus, they’re pretty easy to make and the decorating possibilities are endless. This exciting activity will allow your child to really get hands-on and tap into their creativity.

Ingredients for the dough:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1/2 cup water

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 250°
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Stir together all three ingredients together until a dough forms. Using a rolling pin – roll out your dough until it’s about 1/4” thick
  • Cut out your egg shapes – these cookie cutters are super helpful
  • Place the salt dough Easter eggs on parchment-covered baking sheets. Remember to make a hole in the dough shapes so you can hang the ornaments — a straw works perfectly!
  • Bake at 250° for 2 hours
  • Once baked and fully cooled – it’s painting time!! I used acrylic paint, but you can use spray paint as well! 
  • When paint has completely dried, you can use paint pens or even stickers (that’s what we used). I did use a clear coat sealer afterwards to make them last longer and keep the stickers from falling off
  • Use twine or ribbon to hang your beautiful creations

Decorating Easter eggs is one of the best parts of celebrating this hoppy springtime holiday (outranked only by the chocolate, of course). And if you love traditional Easter egg dyeing, we see you and we support you!! But for those of you who would like to venture outside of the vinegar and food coloring box, we’ve rounded up some really fun alternative options for decorating those eggs!! See our favorites below.

DIY Clay Ornaments

Kristy made these DIY clay Easter egg ornaments with her daughter last year and we cannot get over how adorable they are! Plus, they’re pretty easy to make and the decorating possibilities are endless. This exciting activity will allow your child to really get hands-on and tap into their creativity.

Ingredients for the dough:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1/2 cup water

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 250°
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Stir together all three ingredients together until a dough forms. Using a rolling pin – roll out your dough until it’s about 1/4” thick
  • Cut out your egg shapes – these cookie cutters are super helpful
  • Place the salt dough Easter eggs on parchment-covered baking sheets. Remember to make a hole in the dough shapes so you can hang the ornaments — a straw works perfectly!
  • Bake at 250° for 2 hours
  • Once baked and fully cooled – it’s painting time!! I used acrylic paint, but you can use spray paint as well! 
  • When paint has completely dried, you can use paint pens or even stickers (that’s what we used). I did use a clear coat sealer afterwards to make them last longer and keep the stickers from falling off
  • Use twine or ribbon to hang your beautiful creations

Another cute spring idea for girls is a pair of glittering rainboots and a couple floral outfits with a pastel swirl pillow animal and some of her favorite candies!!

And if you’re thinking a little further ahead, a beach chair with a bathing suit or two, some books, and a pretend pet to keep them busy during those long months off from school is a fun summer-themed basket idea.

A mini wagon filled with accessories like nail polish, lip gloss, a magic wand, and sparkly flip flops is an ideal basket idea for your little princess!

For the boys, a dump truck stuffed with athletic gear and sensory toys will keep them active and occupied for months to come!

And here’s another dump truck idea with toys and treats that he’ll jump for joy over!

We can’t forget our pets!! For your fur baby, fill a basket with dog toys and puppy treats because they deserve a little Easter love, too.

And here’s another adorable idea using a water table as an Easter basket!!

This is the cutest Easter Basket idea I have ever seen!! 🤩 I wish I would have thought about this when my kids were littler.

Surprise your little one with a gift that keeps on giving! We gifted our children one last year, and it was one of the most played with toys! Hours of fun and it’s a great way to keep them cool – my kids enjoy those water beads in it too!

I compiled a great list of Easter Items that would look fantastic on top of Easter grass in one of these water tables.
