Are you feeling the pineapple craze? Mine started with this cute Pillowfort pineapple pillow and led to these easy pineapple Easter eggs. Because who has time to spend hours dyeing and then hand painting hard boiled eggs? I’m assuming not you. These pineapple eggs are perfect for egg hunts with small children and take just a couple of minutes to make!
- Plastic eggs with holes in the top – you can get them here
- Green easter grass (this kind is best)
- String – I love this bakers twine
- Permanent marker like a sharpie in black and pink if you want rosy cheeks
- Scissors – these ones just make me happy
- Candy or prizes if you plan to stuff your eggs
To start my pineapple Easter eggs I threaded some baker’s twine through the holes in the top half of the egg so the strings were sticking out on top. Next I grabbed a handful of Easter grass and used the strings sticking out to tie it on top of the egg. Double knot it and trim the excess string so your knot can hide in the grass.
Fold the easter grass up and fan it out a bit. Then trim from the outside at an angle so the grass in the middle is taller than towards the edges. This is what will give the egg that pineapple feeling. Don’t worry about it being perfect. These are eggs for kids, not a dissertation.
When you’re done trimming, your egg should look something like this. Now click the top and bottom halves of your egg back together and decide what kind of face you want to draw.
I went this this blushing face I had seen on another stuffed animal. It’s super cute and more importantly easy to draw because my drawing skills are just pathetic. Two arched lines for eyes and add a couple of winged eyelashes. A small U makes a mouth and then I drew a couple of bigger light pink circles and filled them in for the flushed cheeks. Fill them with candy, temporary tattoos, coins, or the promise of a one-on-one date and you’re set!
If you have kids, Easter is about making fun things that you can share with them or do with them. I’m always looking for simple ideas that anyone can do which don’t take hours or require a million components. These pineapple easter eggs checked all the boxes for me and Kayla was SO excited when she saw them.
