Egg Decorating with Emu's Zine

As Easter approaches we turn to what is a tradition in many families - decorating Easter eggs.   Of course, you can buy egg decorating kits at the store, but the number of eggs it will decorate is limited, the cost runs up and the kids always want to know "what next?"  Below are ideas for egg decorating projects that we hope will add a little variety to your Easter Egg decorating.  

Most will work with chicken, duck, goose, rhea, emu or ostrich eggs.  We have tried to make notes when a method is not suitable for the larger eggs.  Because emu eggs are a dark green, they are not suitable for most dyeing projects, but we have included them in a couple of other ideas.

Using boiled eggs in a hunt may be traditional, but leaving boiled eggs un-refrigerated for a couple of hours is risky.  Please consider using blown eggs this year instead of boiled eggs.
