The pretty colors, the endless decorating options and hours of fun. That's the kind of joy that comes from decorating easter eggs!  The Easter holiday is just around the corner, and although there is so much more to this holiday - great food, loads of chocolate, the Easter bunny, and the religious celebrations to start -  it just wouldn't be the same without some good ol' DIY egg-decorating.

Whether you are at home with your loved ones or travelling to one of the top Easter destinations, you can always get your hands on a few eggs and craft materials. All you really need after that is a little imagination.
