4 Easy Toddler Easter Egg Crafts

Growing up I remember doing egg art projects in art class that I absolutely loved.

It’s fun to kind of go out of the box and do different activities for Easter instead of just dying eggs.

I’m in this stage of having panic attacks over how quickly my son is growing up. He’s 2 going on 12 and I have tried my best to enjoy and savor every moment with him because I know this toddler stage will be gone before I know it.

It’s really important to me to have keepsakes from all stages of his life. That’s why I decided to do Easter egg crafts in addition to the normal tradition of dying Easter eggs.

I hope you and your toddler enjoy what we came up with!

Easter Egg Painting with Plastic Easter Eggs

What You Need:
What To Do:
  1. Draw an egg shape on the paper with a pencil.
  2. Squirt a little bit of paint at the bottom of a bowl and use the paint brush to cover the whole bottom. (See picture) This is so you actually get circles and not globs of paint! Use a different bowl for each color.
  3. Crack open your plastic eggs and place one half in each bowl of paint.
  4. Model how to dip the egg in the paint and how to stamp it on the paper.
  5. When it dries – cut it out and glue on construction paper. (optional)
  6. Cut out a strip of green grass for the bottom. (Optional)

For Toddlers – I recommend giving them one bowl at a time. If they know their colors this is the perfect chance to reinforce what they already know. If they don’t know their colors, this is the perfect activity to practice with them!*

*If they don’t know their colors – I recommend you matching the egg color with the paint color if possible so they don’t get confused.

Easter Egg Coloring with Chalk

What You Need:
What To Do:
  • Draw an egg shape on the paper with a pencil or chalk.
  • Let your child be creative! πŸ™‚
  • Cut it out and place it on construction paper. (Optional)
  • Cut out a strip of green grass for the bottom. (Optional)

Tips and Things To Think About

  • Draw an egg on card stock and cut it out to trace for all other egg projects.
  • If your munchkin mixes colors – it’s okay. I know it’s rough but expecting them not to at this age is pretty darn impossible.
  • Let them do their own work. If you start stamping or painting away with them to make it “look better” you won’t truly appreciate it in long run. I went to read a book to a kindergarten class when I was in high school and after the teacher asked me to stay to help with a project. She was yelling at the kids and doing things for them because their work wasn’t perfect. It really stuck with me. Art isn’t supposed to be perfect! It’s supposed to be creative and fun! πŸ™‚
