Let your baby or toddler enjoy mess free painting with plastic Easter eggs in this super simple craft. A fun activity at Easter or anytime of year!
Painting in a bag is a great way to let your baby or toddler experience the joys of painting but without all the mess. I like to use them with my 17 month old twins (for obvious reasons) when I need a quick activity that wont leave me with a tons of mess to clean up.
This activity is very easy to set up but also allows your little one to develop and strengthen their fine motor skills and hand eye coordination as well as paint!
Mess Free Easter Egg Painting
Painting with a Ziploc is quite possibly the best thing ever! I love doing painting activities but find it challenging with two toddlers who still like to put things in their mouths.
Baggie painting is a great way to introduce painting with a baby or toddler.
Make a Paint Baggie
Pour dabs of different coloured washable kid’s paint into a large Ziploc bag. Remove most of the air and seal it tightly. If you want to add a sheet of paper into the bag to save your little one’s art work do so before adding the paint and sealing it.
Secure the Ziploc bag to the floor or a highchair tray. Hand your baby or toddler a plastic Easter egg broken in half.
They can use either end to move the paint around in the sensory bag. My twins grabbed the rounded ends of the plastic Easter egg and used the opened end to paint.
Fine Motor Fun
This was a super simple and fun mess free painting activity that my 17 month old twins really enjoyed!
