No Eggs? Try These Kids Easter Art Ideas
Are you looking for a way to celebrate Easter with an easy art activity? Your creative kiddos can craft an array of eggs–minus the real thing. These artsy, egg-less ideas will entertain your young child, help them to build fine motor skills and give them the chance to learn more about shapes and colors!
Giant Poster Egg
Start with a large piece of white poster paper. Ask your child to draw an egg-shaped oval on the front of the paper. If they aren’t sure what an oval is, look at a real egg or find other ovals around the house. After they draw the oval, your child can fill in the egg with a rainbow of crayon or marker colors.
Clay Easter Eggs
Instead of the real deal, your child can build a 3-D egg from modeling clay. Select a few different colors of clay to start the project. Your child can sculpt the structure of the egg from one color or they can mash a few different hues together, creating a tie-dye or swirled effect. Help them to roll and sculpt the clay into an oval shape. After the “egg” is ready, they can decorate it with clay polka dots, stripes, or another design.
Glitter Paper Easter Eggs
Your child can draw oval eggs onto white or light-colored card stock paper. Use a paintbrush to coat each egg with clear-drying school glue. Sprinkle different colors of glitter onto the glue to create sparkling patterns on the Easter eggs!
