Painting Easter eggs is a must every Easter holiday. An easy, fun and messy activity to be shared amongst friends and family. And I must confess this is one of those parenthood things I was looking forward to... through rose tinted glasses... now there is the reality of the sugar high and bickering that comes with the package, but heck it's still fun.
ALL YOU NEED
a box (big box!) of white coated chocolate eggs
food colouring diluted in a bit of water
old toothbrushes for splattered paint effects
clean water for rinsing brushes
and some keen kids... and adults!
A little tip: To get the worst of the food colouring off little hands, try a little squeeze of lemon juice.

When all was done and and our chocolate eggs a little dry we had a good old egg and spoon race..
