Creative Kids’ Easter Egg Art Activities

easter-kids

Are you on the hunt for a creative way to color Easter eggs this year? Your child adores the traditional dip and dye technique. But you’re wondering if there’s a more creative or colorful option. Check out the easy, imaginative and awesome ways to add extra fun to this holiday tradition. Unlike the eggs you eat, these kids’ crafts are purely ornamental.

Use Crayons

Yes, crayons. Before your child drops their egg into a cup filled with a brightly hued dye, hand over the waxy crayons. Don’t worry about the colors of the crayons, a plain white will work perfectly for this project. Encourage your child to gently draw designs onto the egg with the crayons. If they only use white, they may not see what they’re drawing. Don’t worry. This creates a magical surprise. Dip the eggs into dye baths and watch what happens. The liquid colors won’t stick to the waxy crayon drawings.

Glove-Dyed Eggs

Place a latex-free, powder-free cleaning glove over part of the egg. Secure it with a rubber band. Dip the egg into a dye bath. Take the egg out and let it dry. Remove the glove to reveal a clean patch. Repeat the steps for the other half, quarter or part of the egg. Place the dyed part of the egg under the glove this time. Put the egg back in the dye to color the rest of the shell.

Tissue Eggs

Create purely decorative eggs that you, your child or anyone else won’t eat. Instead of food coloring, use tissue paper to dye eggs. Look for tissue that isn’t colorfast. If it says non-bleeding, don’t use it for this art activity. Paint the egg with plain water. Cover the water with a bright or bold piece of tissue paper. Press the tissue onto the egg. Remove the paper to reveal a pastel hue. Repeat these steps to add more colors!
