Sharpie. Doodle. Sounds simple right?
I’m all about simple. And mess free. Let’s get real though, I have 3 kids. There’s hardly such a thing as simple and mess free, it’s either one or the other. For example, mornings. Does anyone else dread mornings? Simple = everyone wants Lucky Charms. Mess free? Yeah right, cereal is on the floor, rainbow marshmallows are in Ellie’s hair and at least one kid has to change their clothes due to mistaking their shirt for a napkin.
Decorating Easter eggs are much the same as my mornings, they may be simple but they are hardly mess free! That’s why these sharpie doodle eggs are right up my alley. Ha! I didn’t even need the kids to help me do them! For real though, I have a hard time relaxing. When I do relax, it’s usually while binge watching something on Netflix and even then my hands are doing something. That’s why these were fun to do, and they are especially fun if you are a doodler like myself.
I picked up these plastic decorating eggs at Wal Mart, they claim to be dye-able, but we haven’t had much luck with them. They are great for coloring though because they have a matte surface so your doodles don’t smear as you move the egg around!
Yeah, it’s pretty simple. An ultra fine point sharpie and some white plastic eggs. Just doodle what comes to you, there’s really no right or wrong way to do it. Patterns, pictures, words. You can add a pop of color in if you wanted. I like the black and white look, so I left mine as is. And the fun thing about doodling is that it doesn’t have to be perfect! Perfection is in the imperfection….or something like that.
And then sometimes you only notice in a photo that your aspiring 2 year old artist managed to sneak a scribble onto an egg. High fives all around if you can find it!
Doodle away my friends!
