Make an Easter Egg

Supplies Needed:

  • paper
  • scissors
  • paint
  • plastic Easter eggs
  • lid or bowl to hold paint

Cut out a large egg shape from your paper. You could also draw an egg shape and have your child cut it out.

Next, have your child paint with the Easter eggs. Separate the Easter egg into two halves. Dip the Easter egg half into paint. {It works well to spread the paint out in a thin layer on a lid or bowl larger than the Easter egg.

Easter Craft for Preschool

Stamp a circle onto the egg-shaped paper.  Continue stamping until you need more paint. Dip the Easter egg half in paint again. Change colors or keep the same color. Experiment with stamping and making circles.

Other Ways to Use the Plastic Easter Eggs

Try painting with the entire Easter egg {Don’t separate it}. Roll the Easter egg around in the paint and then roll it around the paper. This version is a lot messier but just as fun.

Use the Easter egg halves as a stencil for tracing circles. The Easter egg is a little easier for preschoolers to hold onto. You may have to help them hold the egg half down at first. As they get used to tracing, you should be able to touch the egg less and less.
