I hope you enjoy these free adult Easter egg coloring pages. When I sat down to color one of these Easter printables for this post, my two teen daughters sat themselves down and said they wanted to color also. So, while I say these are adult coloring sheets, they are actually great for all ages.
For me, the Easter egg represents new life. This new life is found in Jesus Christ, and his resurrection is exactly what we celebrate during the Easter season.

It was a very relaxing morning as we sat, colored and chatted around the table. After the experience, I believe I should pull out coloring sheets more often. There was no prompting needed.

Sometimes it takes asking and initiation. Other times, it happens authentically with no prompting needed. They just need to be inspired by what they see you doing.
What is the origin of the Easter Egg?
According to English Hertiage:
“Throughout history, people across the world have given each other eggs at spring festivals to mark the seasons. Early Christians in Mesopotamia dyed eggs in the period after Easter. The practice was adopted by the Orthodox Churches, and from there it spread into Western Europe. Eggs represent new life and rebirth, and it’s thought that this ancient custom was absorbed into Easter celebrations.”
Read more about that here and discover more about the “pace egg” as well as recipes for dying eggs using natural ingredients like tumeric, onions and cochineal.

Digital Easter Egg Coloring Sheet Option
When my husband walked in and saw us all coloring, he wanted to engage too. I was ready to let him pick out his egg and print it out, but he had other ideas. He wanted to color on his iPad. So, downloaded the design and went to work.
He had a coloring app called Pigment, but there are a lot of options. This one had a bunch of costly upgrades, so he had only basic colors, and it downloads with a watermark with the paid version of Pigment. I’m sure there are other great options out there.
