Easy Easter Egg Craft
This Easter egg craft is so easy to make so it’s perfect for preschoolers and toddlers, although older kids might enjoy it too!
It’s a craft that’s great for using up household materials, look for that bit of foil in the back of a cupboard and dig out those pots of kids paints that have a little bit left in them, it’s a great one for using up the last of them!
I’ve used our egg shape printed onto cardstock for this craft but as you’ll see below it really is one you can adapt if you don’t have the exact materials at home.
It’s also a fun way to look at colors and color mixing with your child, what color will they create on their egg if the blue and yellow paints mix?
Foil Painted Easter Egg Craft Materials:
- Aluminium foil (kitchen foil)
- Easter egg template
Let’s make it
Start by cutting out Easter egg shapes from some card, you can either draw the egg shape yourself or use our free template, I recommend using cardstock rather than paper if you can because card tends to be better at holding a lot of paint while paper can get a bit sloppy very quickly!
If you don’t have any cardstock at home you could draw an egg shape onto some recycled cardboard such as a cereal packet.
Next pop some paint onto a plate, using a plate means that it’s much easier to access the paint and dip the tin foil in it. Scrunch up the tin foil and you are ready to get painting!
With my kids I’ve always found that they enjoy painting using with foil just because it’s a different material to the normal paintbrushes but it’s also good because it feels and sounds different, making it a bit more of a sensory experience.
