Easter Egg Paint Print for Kids
Are you looking for an easy Easter craft for your kids? If you have tons of those plastic eggs sitting around, then your kids can get artsy. With a little bit of paint you can make Easter prints! Your child can use the circle shape from the open part of the egg to make a bunny’s head, a chick’s body or spring flowers. Before getting started, pick out an Easter-themed design idea. Brainstorm possible print painting ideas, asking your child what shapes each is made from. For example, a bunny is a circle with two oval ears.
