Easter egg coloring


Materials to make your decorative eggs

Colored cardstock in several different colors

I chose bright pink, light blue, yellow and bright blue

Colored textas or marker pens

Craft glue and 5 wooden tooth picks


Egg Coloring

Draw and cut out about 5 or 6 individual ovals onto colored cardstock to create your Easter eggs.

Easter fun is creating your very own Easter egg painting designs for your Easter egg basket

Each of your decorative eggs needs to be about 2ins wide x 2 1/2 ins in height

Easter egg decorating

Use different colored marker pens to create individual easter egg designs and patterns for each of the easter eggs.

Or, you could do some Easter egg painting instead of using marker pens, to create some lovely egg painting designs.

Turn each of your decorative eggs over to the blank side and glue a small tooth pick onto the back and allow to dry.

Once they are all dry, place each painted egg gently into the basket to stand up in the paper shreds.
