Over the weekend, we made a bunch of paper Easter egg crafts….. even my toddler was able to join in on the fun!
First we made marble painted Easter eggs with shaving cream.
Start by placing shaving cream in a shallow dish. My 4 year old and 15 month old used a paintbrush to make it foamy. Then I added dabs of different colored paints. They both got a kick out of
swirling all the colors around.
I precut paper egg shapes beforehand and gave them to my son to press on top of the shaving cream. When you lift the paper up, it turns into a beautiful marbled Easter egg! I wish that I would have had Easter paint colors, but they turned out great regardless.
These 2 were made on colored paper instead of white paper- pink & yellow.
My 1 year old painted her egg with the foamy shaving cream paint.
My son couldn’t resist getting all gooped up and exploring how it felt in between his fingers. Baby Girl also enjoyed squishing it everywhere.
I left a paper towel on the table while I was taking pictures & my daughter was quick to snatch it up. She pretended to use it like a washcloth and was wiping up her mess. Then she decided it would be fun to “wash” her face with it too! My son thought it was hilarious that his little sister now had a beard!!!
They sure did make a mess but it was worth it to see how much fun they had in the process! Cean up wasn’t bad either, it just took about 10 minutes longer than normal mainly because my daughter placed her gooped up hands all over the chair she was standing and on the table.
We love messy fun in this home!
The kids also used markers and foam stickers to decorate paper eggs.
We also made Thumbprint Easter Eggs which I blogged about here! My son made a thumbprint rainbow egg and I helped him make a thumbprint bunny & carrot.
I made ones with thumbprint flowers & baby chicks…. whose says momma can’t act like a kid again too!
What paper Easter egg designs have you made?
