This was a fun and simple to set up Easter egg painting activity that works well with one child or many. Making it a great activity for home, daycare or school.

Using the sharpie draw a large egg on a large piece of kraft paper. Tape it to the floor.
Inside the egg draw wavy lines, different shapes and patterns for your little one to paint along and inside.
Easter Egg Painting Time
When doing a painting activity like this I like to put the paints into separate colourful bowls and then add a brush for each colour.
This allows my little one to paint without having to worry about cleaning the brushes after each colour.
Then I had my 3.5 year old decorate the giant Easter egg using the paint!
Fine & Gross Motor Fun Easter egg Painting
This activity was great for working both fine and gross motor muscles. Such as trying to paint along the giant lines using a paint brush.
Before we started this activity I reminded my three year old (in a way that would appeal to her so as to not start the activity on a negative note) that the paint stays on the paper.
I also made sure she was wearing clothes that I didn’t mind getting dirty. I forgot to put her in a paint smock but that is also a good idea for this activity. Also, I had wipes and paper towel on hand.
