It’s been a long, cold winter…. While we wait for spring to come, here’s an egg-cellent Easter activity for the kids. These Paint Splatter Easter Eggs are fun, festive, and best of all – mess-free! 🙌
My kids are impatiently waiting to get outside and play. Here in Ohio, it was nice for 1 day then… it snowed. 😞 Not only did this time-filling activity help us get through a long afternoon, it exercised some valuable motor skills and allowed devoted time to discussing the meaning of Easter to our family. This project will allow your kids to practice their cutting, drawing, & tracing skills, creative and unique painting techniques, and color theory. My daughter had a blast choosing colors to mix and seeing what color came out after a vigorous shake session.
1. Cut cardstock sheet in half.
2. Roll & fit cardstock in to plastic jar.
3. Squirt paint(s) on bottom of jar.
4. Throw in a few jelly beans & replace lid.
7. Remove paper & let dry.
8. Trace or draw egg shape.
9. Cut egg out.
🐣 HAPPY EASTER! 🐇
Let the kids go nuts makin’ & shakin’ to create festive decor such as a splatter egg banner or Easter brunch place card holders! This technique would also work on hearts for Valentine’s Day, stars for 4th of July, or trees for Christmas!
And if somebunny in your house is still “bored”, these Marker Dyed Easter Eggs are another mess-free (yay!) way to entertain, engage and decorate! Craft kits, such as this Magic Bean Garden kit are also a great way to combat boredom! And make great Easter basket fillers (in case the big bunny is looking for ideas).
