As kids, we used to boil and dye eggs when we were of a sensible age. We also painted eggs, it kept us pleasurably absorbed for hours. 

I have memories of sparkly sugar eggs being introduced at some point. They had windows in them with scenes of mini chicks running around. I think we had them for two or three sequential years, then that type of confection disappeared. Chocolate eggs of all sizes became ubiquitous as post war austerity lessened. Our real fun was to awake to find a few coloured hens eggs scattered around on our bed covers. Anything else was an added extra.
