Set Up

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.

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

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.

Containing Mess

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. I also had wipes and paper towel on hand.
