Hard-boil some chicken eggs and then let your toddler paint them in bright colours. Alternatively, you can dye them by dipping them in food dye (although this method could end up being a LOT messier). You could also blow out the egg first, by making a small hole in the narrow top of the egg and a larger one at the bottom and blow out the yolk and white. If you do this, you can thread some ribbon through it and it will be light enough to hang from an Easter tree.
