Tattooed Easter Eggs

If you are looking for a super fun, easy and almost mess free way to decorate Easter eggs this year, we have you covered with this Insta-worthy idea!

STEP 1

Since of the tattoo sheets contain multiple designs on one sheet, we decided to cut out each individual design to optimize their use. When doing so, it’s ideal to leave some white space around each piece so there is something to hold onto while applying it to the egg.

STEP 2

On a cool, hard boiled egg place the tattoo face down in the desired location. Be mindful of the designs orientation; an upside-down bunny will look a little dizzy!

Once in place use a damp paper towel to apply even pressure to the backside of the tattoo for 30 seconds. Starting in a corner, slowly peel away the white backing from the egg, and voila!

HELPFUL TIPS:

  • When removing the backing, if the tattoo is not sticking to the egg, reset the backing and apply additional pressure. 
  • Peel the backing straight back. Do not slide the backing off of the egg. This may cause your tattoo to fold, crinkle, or smear the design.

Happy almost St. Patrick’s Day! To celebrate the day, we rounded up some of our favorite magical items to create an easy craft that’s kid friendly.

BONUS ITEM

This activity pairs well with Adam Wallace’s book How to Catch a Leprechaun!

STEP 1

First things first, scout out the perfect place to set your trap! Leprechauns are sneaky little buggers, so we recommend setting your trap by a window, fireplace or door.

Once you have selected the perfect location, set your charger plate and napkin down as the staging ground for your trap.

STEP 2

Time to decorate! Using stickers, jazz up your trap until its just right. Don’t forget Leprechauns love all things sparkly!

Next, cut the paper straw into thirds to create the prop used to support the trap. We found making a small ledge or slit on the side of the straw (as seen in the first picture above) helps tremendously.

STEP 3

Laying the bait is an important step in setting the perfect trap. Candies, clovers and other playful elements are sure to draw in an unsuspecting Leprechaun! After the bait in placed set your trap and wait.

These magical little guys are nearly to impossible to catch but if you’re lucky enough one will undoubtedly visit your trap. Even if you don’t catch one, they will likely leave a sweet treat or token behind to say “Happy St. Patrick’s Day”!
