Plastic Easter Egg Crafts for Kids

easter crafts

You already use plastic Easter eggs to hide your child’s holiday goodies. But what should you do with them after the holiday is over? You could throw them away or save them for next year. Or, you could upcyle them into awesome art activities!

If you have leftover plastic Easter eggs, check out these projects that are perfect for pint-sized Picassos.

Paint Print

Pour several different colors of tempera paint onto a piece of cardboard. Open the eggs and have your child dip the flat (circle-shaped) sized into the paint. They can press the paint-covered edge onto a piece of construction paper or card stock, making circular prints. Your child can continue printing, using different colors. Mix the paint colors to make new ones, create patterns, make abstract art or put the prints together to make a spring picture.

Clay Sculpture

Use the egg as a base for a cute clay sculpture. Create a spring bird, bunny or other animal with the egg as the face or body. Your child can cover the egg in soft modeling clay, and then add extra pieces as ears, arms, legs, wings, feet or facial features.

Cute Cups

Turn the used eggs into cute personalized containers. Your child can draw on the exterior of the eggs with permanent markers (washable markers will come off too quickly), writing their name or making a special design. Keep the eggs around the store small toys, pretend play jewelry or anything else that fits.
