Ingredients and Directions


  1. PREP your paint pens by following the instructions on their package. For most, you’ll need to SHAKE the pens with the cap on, then TAP the pen tip on a piece of paper until the paint begins to flow.

  2. DRAW on your eggs! You can draw shapes, words, faces, flowers, geometric patterns and more. Now, get creative.

  3. The paint in paint pens dries within a few minutes. So decorate one side of your egg, then set it down on a paper plate to dry before moving onto the next side. That way, your design and your fingers stay clean.

    Should you eventually want to eat your eggs, be sure to use edible paint pens.


  • 12 Hard-boiled brown and white eggs, in shell

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
