Is your family anti-egg? Maybe you don’t like the taste, are a vegan, or have a food allergy. Regardless, being anti-egg doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the fun and creativity of decorating Easter eggs! Instead of decorating real eggs, simply opt for “decorating” these free printable Easter egg coloring pages!
I love dyeing and decorating Easter eggs but because my family is a small family we don’t need dozens of eggs. The three of us just simply cannot eat as many eggs as my son wants to decorate, and I hate wasting food! Luckily, we can add to the fun of dyeing Easter eggs by decorating Easter egg coloring pages for adults and kids!
At first glance, you may think that decorating these free Easter egg coloring pages can’t really be as good as decorating “traditional” Easter eggs, but they actually have a lot in common. For example both:
- Are creative. Whether you’re dyeing an egg or coloring an Easter egg coloring pages PDF that you’ve printed, you’re expressing your creativity and using your imagination!
- Are festive. Whether it’s a “real” egg or a paper egg, both are Easter eggs.
- Can be “quality time” activities. You can dye eggs or decorate printable Easter egg coloring pages together as a family.
- Can be used for “hunting.” If your family traditionally has hidden real decorated eggs (instead of colored plastic eggs filled with sugary treats), you can still enjoy that activity with these free printable Easter egg coloring pages. Simply cut out the eggs after you color them and hide them just as you would “real” eggs. Then perhaps allow your kid to exchange the paper eggs for treats after the hunt is complete!
See, these Easter egg coloring pages to print are pretty awesome (and budget friendly)! 🙂
16 Hard Easter Egg Coloring Pages in One
The first of the free printable Easter egg coloring pages offers a lot of bang for your buck! (Okay, it’s free so there is no “buck,” but you get what I’m saying, right?) There are 16 separate, intricate Easter eggs to color. This coloring page is a bit of a challenge but I’ll bet your creativity is up for it!
You know, I think the only downfall to these free Easter egg coloring pages is that you can’t eat them. Well, I mean, technically, I guess you could, but I wouldn’t recommend it! 😉 However, there are lots of other spring snacks you and your family can make in place of hard boiled eggs. Some of my favorite nutritious and delicious options are:
- Yogurt like frozen yogurt bark and homemade “Go-Gurt” with hidden veggies.
- Pretzels especially these butterfly pretzels and flower pretzel bites.
- Fruits and veggies, and I can’t get enough of this Easter bunny fruit platter or this Easter bunny veggie platter.
- Coconut oil popcorn.
- Gluten free licorice.

Looking for another challenging Easter egg coloring page for adults and kids? Look no further! Here’s another of the free Easter egg coloring pages with 16 eggs on one sheet. I love how this coloring page gives you opportunities to use many (many) different crayons!
Itching to reach for those oddball crayons like “Inch Worm,” “Unmellow Yellow,” and “Atomic Tangerine?” I think these Easter egg coloring pages PDF downloads give you plenty of opportunities, but if you need even more coloring sheets, I recommend these “Happy Easter” coloring pages and these Easter Bunny coloring pages.
Easter Egg Coloring Pages PDF: Floral Design
The first of the “standalone” (single) Easter egg coloring pages for adults and kids features a pretty floral pattern. This whole design just says “spring” to me. I think it’s because of the flowers and then the larger abstract pieces remind me of suns.
Spring is coming, but depending on where you live, those gorgeous spring blooms could still be a ways away. If the flowers in this easy Easter egg coloring page appeal to you, consider creating a sort of “indoor garden” by coloring more flowers. These iris coloring pages are a great place to start!

Easter Egg Coloring Pages for Adults
I would consider at least 2 out of 3 of these to be “hard” Easter egg coloring pages due to the fine details. This means they may be a bit too challenging for really young children who haven’t quite mastered fine motor coordination, but they’re perfect for adults.
Here’s the thing—if you’re coloring as an adult, you want a bit of a challenge so that you can really focus on the coloring and nothing else. This intense focus will help you stop thinking (a.k.a. worrying) about other things and get into that state of relaxation! So embrace the challenge these hard Easter egg coloring pages offer!
