Is there anything sweeter than adorable kids, gathering for an afternoon of crafts and treats?! We’re everything you need to know to host your own Easter egg decorating party for kids!
I thoroughly enjoy hosting intimate parties for my son, family, and friends, so this year I put together a watercolor, Easter egg decorating party!
We painted eggs (the metallic watercolor eggs came out awesome!) and snacked on the bite-sized bunny and carrot sandwiches, rainbow deviled eggs, and a yogurt serving bar.
The adults’ sipped pineapple and coconut cocktails and we made the most creamy and delicious white hot chocolate for the kids!
We also made chocolate-dipped apples covered in coconuts and marshmallows!!
The kids always have such a good time and the joy I get from creating special memories for their childhood is priceless! Below are all of the details you need for hosting an Easter party for kids.
Easter Party Food for Kids
Serve fun, bite-size food that kids can grab and go! Here are some tasty ideas!
- Little Bunny Sandwiches
- Colored Deviled Eggs
- Yogurt Cups
- Fruit Salad
- Hummus and Carrots
Easter Desserts for Kids
Of course, it’s not a party without dessert! Here are some delicious Easter dessert ideas that kids will just love!
- Easter Bunny Sugar Cookies
- White Hot Chocolate
- Candied Apples
We covered this apple with marshmallows and it was so fun for the kids!
Bunny Candy Apple
This candy apple is made by dipping an apple into white chocolate, adding shredded coconut while the chocolate is warm and then making little ears using a piping bag and candy melts.
You can pipe the ears on wax paper and let them dry before adding them to the apple.
Easter Party Supplies
Here is a list of supplies to think about when you’re hosting an Easter party for kids:
- Table and Tablecloth
- Paper Cups and Plates
- Small Bowls for Water
- Buckets of Hardboiled Eggs
- Flowers for Decor
- Throw Pillows
- Egg Crates
Flowers add so much to a simple table setting. Even for a kids party, we still love the look of them and I truly believe the kids do too!
For the Adults!
Even at a kids’ party, I always try to have a little cocktail for the adults! Serve something fun like a frozen pina colada! Parents can sip on a cocktail and enjoy while the kids play! Here are some more ideas too!
Easter Egg Decorating Ideas
Here are two easy Easter egg decorating ideas that are fun for kids!
Using paintbrush and watercolors, kids can paint their eggs giving them a pretty pastel, marble look!
Watercolor is easy to clean and such a fun craft for kids.
Stickers are mess-free and let kids add words and letters to their eggs! Gab cold letter stickers at a craft store.
Easter Games for Kids
We love playing games at Easter! It’s not always about the egg hunt! There are other fun activities you can do as well. Here are a few of our favorites:
Pin the Tail on the Easter Bunny
Confetti Eggs – A little messy but fun!

Watercolor Easter eggs look soft and leave a pretty pastel color and design on the eggs.
You can also use regular paint for older kids too.
The little toddler hands painting eggs is just the sweetest thing! The happiness and joy it brings me and them is priceless!
The candy apples were a hit at out party. This is a fun dessert for kids to help you make the day before the party too!

The eggs are very pretty, however, since I don’t like to waste food, are the metallic watercolor paints used for this project food grade/safe?
No, you can’t wait the eggs you decorate. If you want to eat decorated Easter eggs, you must use food coloring to dye them.
Are those just regular gold stickers on the eggs?
Did you get the metallic watercolor paints from Target too? I loved your idea of putting names on Easter eggs for the table, how did you make them look marbled?
Can you give us some pointers on who you made the few items in your post?
(1) What are the bunny ears on the “caramel apples” made out of?
(2) How did you dye the rainbow deviled eggs?
Hi Megan! Yes, the bunny ears are made from candy melts! I just melted candy melts and then put it in a piping bag and piped ears onto parchment paper. They dry in about an hour!! Then I used the candy melt to stick it onto the apple! For the rainbow eggs we hardboiled eggs, took the shells off and used food coloring in a bowl with water to dye them! I hope that helps!!
Thank you, Eden. Appreciate the timely reply 🙂
So many great ideas — I’m trying the rainbow deviled eggs first 🙂
Thank you Sue!!
