Are you looking for a quick, easy and really pretty Easter art project that your kids can do? Here’s a great one.
Draw an Easter egg in crayon onto a piece of white paper. Add squiggles, lines, dots, swirls, or whatever you think should go on your egg.
Get out watercolour paint, or watered down tempera paint, in the prettiest spring colours you can find. Paint over the entire egg. Don’t worry about going over the lines.
If the paint seems to thick still when you brush it over the crayon, “paint” again with a dry paintbrush to remove some extra.
When it’s dry, cut out your egg and glue it onto a card, a backing, or make a bunch and create an Easter banner.
