These Easter egg template printables offer a new take on the tradition of dyeing eggs for the Easter holiday. Break out those crayons and choose from 3 free Easter egg template PDFs below.
Do you and your family dye eggs for Easter? Doing so can be a fun and egg-citing way to spend time together as a family and let your kid be creative. However, let me suggest an alternative—color Easter egg templates, like those in this post.
As we check out the free templates for Easter eggs in this post, I’ll give you a whole host of reasons why you should opt for this activity over the traditional hard boiled eggs activity. Let’s hop to it, shall we? 😉
Small Easter Egg Template Printable
One of the reasons these blank Easter egg template printables are so great is the price, or should I say lack-thereof. If you want to go the traditional route, you have to purchase eggs, food coloring, and perhaps other supplies. And if you’ve been to the store recently, you know that the price of eggs is going up. In fact, according to a news release from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, between January 2021 and January 2022, the price of fresh eggs rose 40.9%.
Assuming you have crayons or coloring utensils at home and printer paper, to color these Easter egg templates won’t cost you a penny! 🙂
The small sized Easter egg template free printable gives you nine eggs to color or decorate however you’d like, which is another thing I love about this version of “dyeing” Easter eggs. When you dye eggs, they can be difficult to decorate and your options are fairly limited. On the other hand, with coloring there is so much you can do! Seriously, your kid’s imagination (and your own) are the only limits here!
Bonus: Once you color Easter egg templates, you may want more templates to feed your creativity or to get ready for other holidays. Here are some more free templates you can download right now:
Medium Easter Egg Template PDF
Another reason I like these blank Easter egg template printables, over the tradition of dyeing eggs, is that it’s less wasteful. Depending on how big your family is and how gung-ho they are about dyeing eggs, you may need a lot of hard boiled eggs. Unfortunately, according to the Food Network, hard boiled eggs are only good for about seven days, even when stored in the refrigerator, and I don’t know about you but I hate wasting food. Luckily, these Easter egg template PDFs, never go bad!
If you want a little more space to create an intricate design, opt for the medium free templates for Easter eggs. These may also be a better option if you or your kid want to write some kind of message on the egg, such as “Happy Easter.”
Bonus: While the date Easter falls on varies from year-to-year, it’s always around the start of spring. Get ready for the seasons to change with these spring printables and activities!
Large Easter Egg Template Free Printable
Another point in favor of these free templates for Easter eggs is that they’re simply less hassle than dyeing eggs. When you dye eggs, you first have to boil the eggs, you have to whip up different colors of dye, and that’s all before you even get to the activity itself. These small, medium, and large Easter egg template printables are easy to start, and there’s zero chance that dye will get spilled all over everything! 🙂
If you have a young child who is still developing fine motor coordination or you want to make a larger Easter decoration, opt for the full page Easter egg template. The large Easter egg template printable will give you or your kid plenty of space to create an egg-cellent work of art!
