Celebrate Easter with this fun decorating idea on how to create your own DIY Pokemon Easter eggs. They’re the newest addition to our growing collection of easy Easter crafts for kids!
It’s funny how things like Pokemon are still cool to kids today.
I vividly remember my brothers watching Pokemon after school and wondering why they liked such a weird show.
Fast forward about 20 years and now my own boys love the exact same cartoon.
As a mom, I’m much less annoyed with it now since it teaches good values and morals. And, I have to admit, we have fun playing Pokemon Go together as a family.
Either way, Pokemon is a part of my life with young boys, so I decided to embrace it and create these easy Pokemon Easter eggs.
Read on to learn how to create your own at home.
Fun DIY Pokemon Easter Eggs
Before we get started, here’s a list of supplies you’ll need.
- Pokemon Easter Egg Printables (enter your email below to download them)
- Color Copy Digital Cover Paper (or any thick, white cardstock)
- Scissors (these are my favorite for small, precision cuts)
- Paper Trimmer
- Glue Dots
- Acrylic Paint:
Pokemon Easter Egg Decorating Directions:
Depending on the age of your kids, you may need to do some prep work to get the eggs ready for decorating. You can hard boil your eggs or use a sewing need to punch two holes in the eggs and blow it out.
Or you could go use these wooden eggs.
After your eggs are ready, paint each egg the corresponding color.
I painted each egg with about 4-6 thin coats to get a more even look.
Print out all the printables on thick, heavy, white paper. Cut out the base wraps and the corresponding heads, ears, tails and Bulbasaur’s flower.
Wrap the base piece around the egg to determine the size needed, then secure with tape or a glue dot.
Place the egg on the base wrap and then use a glue dot to secure the face to the front of the egg.
For the ears, I like to use Elmer’s glue or a hot glue gun instead of a glue dot because then there won’t be a gap between the paper and the egg.
To attach the tails and Bulbasaur’s flower, simply use a glue dot and press to the back of each egg.
