Try this marbled egg painting idea with your kids this Easter. It is fun and relatively mess-free too!
We’re excited to have signed up for the Tinkerlab Creative Challenge where each month a certain object is set, and we have to create with it! This month’s object, can you guess, is Eggs!
L, my almost 4-year-old daughter, is at a stage where she is not much interested in activities that take long. She’d much rather just play by herself, mostly imaginative play, and nowadays it is just school-school!
So what we did with this challenge since it must be child-led, I told L she is the teacher, and I’m the child, and she must tell me what to do with the eggs. First, she said we must draw on them, but then changed it to painting. When we got to choose the paint and brushes, she saw the box where we painted with water beads, she decided we must use the box to paint the eggs.
She chose pink and purple paint, squirted it in herself(working those fine motor muscles), and then showed me how to roll it.
The paper got marbled in the process too, so we used it(mommy’s idea) to make an Egg card. So pretty!
Such a fun Easter activity! Try this marbled egg painting idea with your kiddos too! PS: Have you seen this Toddler Easter Card?
