Easter Egg Art Activities for Kids
Don’t have time to dip and dye Easter eggs with the kiddos? That’s okay. Before you make the traditional standards, try these other options. Use the art activities as holiday décor or just keep them to commemorate the special day!
Paper Easter Egg Collage
Cut a large oval from poster board or card stock paper. Give your child a stack of construction paper scraps (leftover from other art activities) to glue on to the egg. They can create patterns, make an abstract Easter design or puzzle together holiday-themed shapes such as bunnies or chickies.
Craft Felt Eggs
This is an easy, and reusable, art project for kids. Cut an oval-shaped egg from an 8×10-inch piece of craft felt. Help your child to cut more pieces of felt, in different colors. They can press and stick the smaller pieces onto the egg. When your child is done with the activity, remove the smaller shapes and pack up the egg in a plastic baggie. Reuse it after the holiday, next year or any time your child wants.
Create your own egg stencil. Cut out an oval shape in the middle of a piece of cardboard, leaving behind a hole. Your child can place the carboard onto another piece of paper and use the shape to trace an egg. Hold or tape the stencil and place as your child cuts or paints the inside.
