Easter morning brings with it time for family memories and celebration…and lots of colored eggs. What’s there to do after the Easter bunny has hopped home, and all the eggs have been found? Easter’s over, but the fun has just begun! Use those beautiful eggs to help your child create a memorable Easter masterpiece to hang up near the table at brunch.
In this activity, your first grader will use fine motor skills – involving multiple muscles in her hands and fingers – to create a bright piece of Easter art. These are the same skills that first graders work hard to develop so that they can print neatly, cut with scissors, draw lines and shapes, and use a ruler. It’s simply egg-cellent practice!
What You Need:
- Hard-boiled, dyed Easter eggs
- Empty egg carton
- Markers, watercolor paints, crayons, or colored pencils
- Thick drawing paper (card stock works well)
- White glue
