Painting with Plastic Easter Eggs
Who doesn’t have extra plastic Easter eggs hanging out around their house? If you are like me I find a half of the plastic Easter egg for months to come around our house! So lets put those little cuties to work with a fun and engaging Easter craft for toddlers!
Materials needed for Painting with Plastic Easter Eggs:
- Tempura Paint
- Paper Plate
- Card Stock Paper
- Plastic Easter Eggs
- Hand Wipes (baby wipes!)
How to Paint with Plastic Easter Eggs:
- Start by squirting the Tempura paint onto a paper plate.
- Take your plastic Easter eggs a part and use those as your “paint brush”
- The preschooler can make circle patterns using the plastic Easter Egg as a stamp
- Or… use the plastic Easter egg circle as a paint brush as my little one explored!
Ask your Toddler or Preschooler questions along the way, here are some examples of our conversation and questions with this STEAM Activity.
- What colors are your plastic eggs?
- Match the color egg to the color of paint.
- Let’s count how many circles you’ve painted.
It’s super simple, hence it’s a GREAT Easter craft or activity for toddlers…but let your little ones explore the materials, have fun and be engaging while learning. Next up on my list of Easter STEAM Activities to do with plastic Easter Eggs are these adorable Birdseed Eggs for spring!
