What a fun way to use all those plastic eggs! Painting with Plastic Easter Eggs~ Buggy and Buddy

Every year about this time plastic Easter eggs seem to always appear out of nowhere in our house. Today Theo and I were using one of them to reenact The Golden Egg Book (one of our favorite Easter stories) when he brought up the idea to paint. Since Theo has loved our last two art projects involving stamping (Sponge Painted Easter Eggs and Sponge Painted Caterpillars), I asked him if he wanted to try using the eggs for painting. He was more than excited!

Painting with Plastic Easter Eggs


Start by squirting some tempera paint onto paper plates and add an opened plastic egg to each plate.

Now you’re ready to create! Place the open end of a plastic egg in the paint and use it to stamp circles on your paper.

Theo was excited to see the shapes on his paper after his first few times stamping and noticed they resembled letters.
