Have you ever heard of Zendoodles?
Zendoodles or Zentangles, are abstract drawings created with pen and ink. The drawing style has been called addictive and relaxing.
Nothing wrong with infusing a little relaxation into this sugar-filled holiday in the form of Zendoodle easter egg coloring pages!

Our amazing Easter egg printable designer, Juliann, has shared her simple “how to Zendoodle” here:
- Use card stock or heavy paper with extra paper underneath so marker doesn’t go through
- Divide Easter egg into several quadrants using swooping lines. Use a pencil lightly and it can be erased at the end.
- Doodle different patterns into each quadrant. Start with a pencil if you want but draw very lightly.
- Use two sizes of black marker (ie. Sharpie Fine Point and Sharpie Extra Fine Point) for the final doodles.
- Each time you make a new shape, let that shape be doodled into. (A big polka dot is really a circle that can be filled with its own doodles.)
- Try to vary texture, size, and value of the doodles. (Ie. If one shape is fairly light and has a lot of white space, the shape next to it can have more concentrated doodles or darker doodles.)
- Let the ink dry for at least 5 minutes before erasing pencil lines.
