We are busy getting ready for Easter. Being stuck at home has meant that we are going all out with decorating for every little thing at the moment. Last year Marcia and I started this fun Easter Egg challenge and we are carrying on with it this year. It is a great activity for the whole family to do together. Give everyone a template and let them decorate it however they want to.
I have been wanting to try out this art activity for a while so decided to use it as a way to decorate for the Easter Egg challenge. The results were pretty cool but this is a quick activity. If you have toddlers it might take longer. You can have more than one sheet of paper ready and get them to try out different colours and different speeds etc. It could actually make a pretty cool wall collage.
What do you need
- A large baking tray
- Different colour paint
- A hard-boiled egg or if you have a plastic egg that will work as well.
- Our Easter Egg template or just plain white paper. We used A4 and it worked well in the baking tray I had.
- Squirt the paint onto the paper or drop it on in blobs.
- Get the kids to roll the egg around the tray until they have the design they want. The less they roll, the prettier the pattern (in my opinion)
This is a fun, messy activity that will take your mind of the chaos and uncertainty and allow you to just be with your children.
Don’t forget to share your finished projects with us.
