Easy Marbled Easter Eggs
Yesterday my boys made marbled Easter eggs using wooden eggs and acrylic paint. We used the same technique that we use to marbleize paper with actual glass marbles, and I love the way that they turned out!

We use disposable roasting pans from the dollar store, lined with a piece of white construction paper, to minimize cleanup. It also gives you a nice bonus piece of artwork at the end of the project!
Add a wooden egg and a few blobs of acrylic paint…you’ll notice that we stuck stickers to a few of our eggs in an attempt to recreate the loveliness we saw HERE…but, the truth of the matter is that the paint got too thick and gloppy for it to work properly. I couldn’t even find the stickers under all that paint on most of the eggs when we were done! We’ll probably try using stickers with regular egg dye when we do the traditional egg dying later. In the meantime, ignore what we did, and skip the stickers for this project 🙂
Give your kiddos their trays and start rolling them around. It works best if you actually pick up your tray and tilt it side-to-side like Sawyer is doing here.
Sutton finally caught on to the proper technique and was totally thrilled with how his eggs looked!
See what I mean about that bonus artwork at the bottom of the tray? We’re going to cut ours up and make Spring/Easter cards to mail to our family and friends.
When your egg is mostly covered (it usually won’t get 100% covered because its odd shape rolls kind of awkwardly), have an adult take the egg out of the pan carefully and dip the remaining white spots right back into a swirly blob of paint. That should take care of covering the whole thing!
Place on a sheet of waxed paper to dry overnight. After a few hours, when the top surface of the paint was dry, I turned the eggs on their sides so that the bottoms could dry. The paint was really thick, so it took quite a while for the eggs to dry completely.
