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.

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.

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!

Watercolor Eggs

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  3. 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!!
