Smiley Face Emoji Easter Eggs
Every year I try to come up with a new way to decorate Easter eggs for my kids. This year, I decided to use one of my favorite emojis for inspiration. We text and message on messenger all the time, and these little smiles are always making an appearance. So, why not add it to the Easter designs? These are just a fun little addition to a basket and trust me, the kids will absolutely love them.

Of course, while you are making these crafts and fun egg ideas, you need to whip up a batch of these chick and egg sugar cookies.
Can I Use Plastic Eggs Instead?
If you prefer not to use real eggs, you can definitely use a plastic egg instead of hard-boiled. In fact, I love the idea of using plastic eggs that I can store away for next year. Just add the faces, then pop candy into them and add to their baskets. Then, you can just drop them into a box and save for next year. What a great way to save time and money from year to year!

What if I am Not Good at Freehand Drawing?
Honestly, this is one of the easiest items to draw. Especially if you use the paint pens that I love for projects like this one. That said, if you still feel like you aren't comfortable actually doing the painting or drawing, you can easily use these emoji face stickers. I found them on Amazon, but you might find them at your local dollar store or even craft store. Peel and stick and make an egg look adorable in seconds!
Another fun idea that doesn't need any special art skills is this adorable unicorn Easter egg idea. You could even use silk squares to dye Easter eggs for a totally fun way to add color and style to them. Kids especially love these unique ways to make eggs for Easter.
How to Make Smiley Face Emoji Easter Eggs
Start by painting the eggs yellow. If you prefer, you can also use yellow dye for this like you would for regular dyed eggs.
Now, you will use your black and red markers to draw on different smiles.
Add simple smiles and eyes.
Or add on silly faces with a tongue sticking out.
Have fun making these and adding them to your Easter baskets.
Once your eggs are done drying, you can put them in egg cups so they stand up and are easy to see in your kids Easter baskets. I really love these little personalized egg cups. They make a great gift to go in their basket, as well as to hold up your painted eggs!
