Theo enjoyed using sponges to stamp our caterpillar craft so much that I just had to come up with another sponge painting activity for him! This time we stamped colorful Easter eggs and used paper to create a basket to hold the eggs. This post contains affiliate links.
Easter Craft: Egg Sponge Painting for Kids
Materials for Easter Egg Craft
- White painting paper (or other thick paper)
- Tempera paints
- Brown construction paper
- Liquid glue
- Brown crayon or marker
Directions for Easter Egg Craft
1. Use a pencil to lightly outline a basket shape on the bottom of your art paper. (You can print out this free printable basket shape to use to make your own tracer. Cut out the shape and trace it onto something sturdy like an old manila folder. Cut out the shape from the manila folder and use it for tracing nests onto art paper!)
2. Cut some egg shapes from your kitchen sponges.
3. Set out some paint in various colors.
4. Dip the sponges in the paint and stamp eggs onto your paper, right above the basket.
5. Cut your brown construction paper into small strips.
6. Glue the strips all over your Easter basket on your paper.
7. Draw the handle of your basket using a brown crayon or maker.
