It is just a great feeling to know that Spring is finally here! I have been waiting for a while to say “Hello” to my favorite season to arrive. What could be a perfect activity more than any other activity to celebrate Spring? How about making your own “Egg-cellent Decorative Easter Eggs”. This method of decorating your Easter eggs can be very messy, but extremely exciting and fun! Just be certain to wear an apron and spread quite a bit of newspaper around your work table to catch your little ones scattered paint. Now, let’s start decorating our “Egg-cellent Decorative Eggs”
Apron or smock
Construction or manila paper
Glass with water
Newspaper or any other roll of paper (Cover the work table)
Start spreading newspaper or any other roll paper on your work table. Pour all the paint colors you will be using in the egg carton. As you can see, Sophia was so excited to pour the paint in the egg carton, that she forgot to put on her apron.
Get your construction or manila paper and start tracing the shape of an egg. Place several sheets of paper together and cut out some egg shapes, then place it on the table. Give them each a cut out egg shape and let them start decorating their eggs anyway they want.
Sophia was way too eager to start painting and since I am always protective of her clothes, I made sure she had her apron on this time. Wear some play clothes or make sure you have “Oxi-Clean” at hand.
Make as many decorative eggs as you want. Encourage them to use all the colors. Paint stripes, polka dots, wiggly lines, faces or anything you can think of. Be creative. Place the completed decorative eggs in a different area to dry out. Once they are all finished with decorating the eggs and they have all dried, glue them on a large piece of roll paper or stick tape to the back of the eggs and post them all over your walls.
