Ever since our three-year-old spotted some plastic eggs at the dollar store a little while back, she’s been really excited about any crafts and activities involving Easter eggs! (She’s even been hiding round and egg-shaped toys all around the house and taking her younger siblings on “Easter egg hunts” to find them.)

So naturally, I had to create some Easter egg templates to use for crafts. And because I know you can use some too, I’ve shared them all below.

Whether you’re looking for a blank Easter egg outline that you can use to design your own Easter eggs, or for a done-for-you Easter egg cutout that you can simply print out, you can download the PDFs below.

Coloring is one thing you can do with this printable, but there are so many other possibilities. Download the files below, then scroll down to find ideas suitable for every age group!

Things to Do with Easter Egg Templates

1. Easter Egg Coloring

Printed Easter egg templates coloured in with markers, coloured pencils and crayons.

The most obvious thing you can do with this template is to simply print it out and let your kids color the eggs.

Once your kids are done coloring the eggs, feel free to cut them out and glue them onto another piece of paper (and help your kids practice their scissor skills in the process) or use them to make an Easter garland!

2. Easter Egg Chalk Tracing

Chalk-traced Easter eggs on black construction paper.

You can also print out the template on black construction paper (or another color of paper, but black looks really cool!) and have your kids use that outline to practice tracing the Easter egg design with brightly-colored chalk!

(Note: Depending on the type of printer you use and the size of your construction paper, you might have to cut the paper down to size.)

3. Easter Egg Symmetry Painting

Easter egg symmetry painting prints on colourful construction paper.

Print out a single egg on a sheet of paper using my “One Per Page” template. Then, use a paintbrush to quickly trace the lines with paint, and fold the sheet of paper down the middle and press both halves together.

Once you unfold the paper, you’ll see an imprint of the egg on the side that was blank!

4. Cardstock Easter Eggs

Colourful cardstock Easter eggs made using printable template.

This project is a great way for older kids to practice their scissor skills!

Just decide which design you want, print it out on two contrasting sheets of cardstock and cut out the eggs. Choose one for the background and cut up the other one right on the black lines, then glue the contrasting pattern onto the background.

5. Glittery Easter Eggs

Paper Easter eggs with glittery decorations.

If you love glitter, this is the project for you!

Print the template on white or colored cardstock and use a bottle of white school glue with a precision tip to trace the black lines contained within the eggs. Then, while the glue is still wet, sprinkle on some fine glitter.

6. Cardboard Easter Egg Puzzles

Easter egg puzzles made using printable template.

This project won’t work with the designs that contain circles, but it works great with the others!

Print the template on colored paper or cardstock, cut out the eggs and glue them onto a piece of cardboard. Then, cut along the black lines using a pair of sharp scissors.

8. Raised Salt Watercolor Easter Eggs

Colourful raised salt watercolour Easter eggs.

How cool does this one look?

Start by printing the template and tracing the lines using white school glue. Then, sprinkle with table salt until the glue is fully covered.

Once the glue is covered, shake off the excess salt and have your kids dip their paintbrushes in liquid watercolor paint and lightly touch the designs. Watch as the colors spread in both directions!

8. Glue and Chalk Pastel Easter Eggs

Colourful glue and chalk pastel Easter eggs on black construction paper.

This project will also require you to print the template on black construction paper and trace the black lines with white school glue.

Wait until the glue is dry. Once it’s done drying, color the inside of the patterns with chalk pastels and use your fingers to spread the pigment in between the lines of glue. So pretty!

9. Bubble Wrap Easter Eggs

Bubble painted Easter eggs on black construction paper.

Finally, this colorful Easter egg painting craft is a great way to reuse any leftover bubble wrap you have lying around the house!

To make it, use the template to create a bubble wrap egg and use a paintbrush to paint colorful designs onto the textured side of the bubble wrap. Press the bubble wrap onto a piece of paper and carefully peel it off to reveal your Easter design!
