6 Egg-cellent Easter art ideas to keep the kids entertained this Easter
It can be a struggle to find Easter art activities that suit a range of ages, so if you’ve got siblings at home, or friends over for Easter, here are my favourite ones. I’ll be doing some Easter craft video demonstrations over on my Squidgydoodle Facebook page week commencing 12th March 2018. Make sure you’re following me to join in the fun.

6 Easter Art Ideas:

1. Salad spinner painting

Cut out a paper egg shape. Blu-tack your paper egg into a salad spinner, add paint (the nearer the centre, the more it spreads out) Put the lid on and spin! Open the lid to see your creation. Add more paint if you want to and spin again!

2. Easter egg suncatchers

Another Easter art activity that’s great for young and old kids is making suncatchers. If you create this contact paper and tissue paper suncatcher from Kids Craft Room you don’t even need to get the glue out. It’s super simple and makes some really pretty suncatchers which you could use on an egg hunt too!

3. Easter Bunny Hats

If you want to make Easter Bunny hats, you can do this cheaply and easily with paper plates. Check out this post by the Suburban Mom for details. The kids can then decorate them with pens, fabric, stickers, paint etc

4. Potato printed eggs

Or why not try potato printing eggs for a really simple, but effective technique that little ones can do too? You could cut zig zags, lines, or spots out of the potato!

5. Wibble wobble egg painting

If you’ve got some plastic eggs left over from an Easter egg hunt, use them to do some wibbly, wobbly egg painting. Cut out a paper egg and put it in a box. You could use a cereal box with the side cut off, a foil tray or a plastic box. Just squirt some paint on your paper egg and wibble wobble your plastic eggs through the paint, by tipping the box, to decorate the egg.

6. Easter egg drip painting

Or if you’re feeling more adventurous, fill them with paint and do some drip painting like this article from Learn Play Imagine. Warning: this can get messy!
I hope you’ve enjoyed these Easter art ideas. Have a great Easter and don’t forget to share your creations @squidgydoodle or #squidgydoodle
Alternatively you could buy a Squidgydoodle craft box. They’re packed full with 4 art and sensory activities and all the equipment you need. No need to search for the glue only to discover it’s dried out, or that you haven’t got the right colour of paint.
Some of the activities mentioned above are Action Art, you can find out more about it in my blog post ‘Action art can be messy, but it doesn’t need to be’  The Easter art activities also include some process art ideas. Find out more about the benefits of process art.

    We very rarely do Easter crafts but I’m hoping that we’ll find time this year. I love the sound of the salad spinner painting, it sounds messy and fun!

      Hi Catherine, Salad spinner is such good fun! You can pickup really cheap salad spinners too. I love seeing the look of delight on kids faces when they open the spinner to discover the creation they’ve made!

    I imagine we’ll have to make a bonnet at some point for our playgroup. I hadn’t thought about painting the left over eggs though so thanks for that. They’ll no doubt enjoy it. Thanks for joining us at #familyfun
