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!
