You can pick up ceramic and plastercraft eggs inexpensively at specialty shops or craft shops.  Papier mache is another option.  And wood.

 I have a egg basket filled with those ceramic eggs.  Yes, def good for painting. Had not thought of painting them!!   Thanks for sharing that, hezz.

Another egg project: 
DD and I took an Easter egg art class one time where we used the plastic eggs, colored tissue paper torn into tiny pieces (about 1/2 inch in size) and an Elmer's "wash" (Elmer's glue + some water to make more of a wash than a thick glue).  Just brush on a bit of the wash and then apply the tissue paper pieces, overlapping a bit.  Make a design or make just a colorful collage.  Really pretty.   
I still have and display the eggs that DD and I made back when she was about 7 or so.

You can buy them at poultry supply stores.  Chicken farmers use them to help convince the chicken to lay their eggs in certain locations.

Thanks for posting this. While I'm fine with the painting of wooden eggs, DH has been lamenting not being able to "dip" eggs with the boys :shrug:

We've done the wood eggs.  However, we don't decorate eggs every year.  There's no need to when you can recycle the wood eggs from prior years.

My eggnots have arrived! Granted, it's been sometime since I've held an actual egg, but these little guys are freakishly realistic. They have the heft of an actual egg! I'm also a sucker for packaging, and these come in the adorable container shown on the site.  I think we'll do 1/2 this year and save 1/2 for next. Thanks for posting this Hezzier!

I found another option at Walmart in the Easter section for $1.97, you will have to buy an egg dying kit to go with it.  But at this price, if they really work, you could do these every year and recycle them when finished...assuming that you will be able to get more every year.
