Easter Art

Get a copy of a basket, or have the children make their own basket. Then provide the children with different colors of paint, mixed with white to make them look lighter and more spring like. Have them dip their thumbs and put it on the basket. Do this as many times as you like. The thumb prints can represent the Easter eggs in the basket.

For a different twist on how to decorate paper eggs, add food coloring to corn syrup! I use at least 5-6 drops for a dramatic effect. Use cotton swabs to apply to a heavier stock paper and you will get glossy and brilliantly colored Easter eggs.

WARNING!! Do not do on a hot and humid day. It will never dry completely.

Using different colored paper cut out an egg shape…then take egg shells that have been colored and crumble them. Then have the children decorate the egg shape with egg shells.

Cut out different colored basket shapes. Have the children collage on them for Easter.

Cut o ut a bunny shape and A hat shape for each child. Have the child glue the hat to the bunny and then have them decorate the bunny.
