Sponged Easter Eggs

Follow the same process as above except having children sponge on the colours instead of making wiggly lines. You will need styrofoam trays with paper towels. Just pour some paint over the paper towels and they can sponge the paint onto their paper. Let dry, draw egg shapes and cut out.

Whether children are discovering patterns, shapes, colours and lines, each activity becomes a learning experience for them. The bonus is that they get to be creative at the same time. Each art activity provides a learning moment. So enjoy Easter and all the fun involved and have your child develop some skills along the way.
