Indoor Activity For Kids:

Plastic Easter egg painting

This activity is a fun way to paint if you have saved plastic Easter eggs from Easter. Kids can make different designs and patterns with the circle shape of the Easter eggs.

This activity is inspired by ideas from Plastic Easter egg painting.

This activity is great to teach your kids:

Fine motor skills involve movement of the smaller muscle groups in your child's hands, fingers, and wrists.

Developing fine motor skills will help your child to write and prepares her for school. But it will also help your children with everyday tasks like eating, and dressing themselves.

Sensory play is play that involves all the senses - taste, sound, sight, touch and smell. Sensory play is very beneficial to children. Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks. Sensory play is also very relaxing and rejuvenating to children.

Step 1

Gather all the supplies

Step 2

Show your kids how to paint with the plastic Easter eggs

My son was quite proud of his painting with the Easter eggs and wanted me to take lots of photos. He had fun using the plastic eggs to paint and I even let him pour some paint onto the paper to paint with.

... split the eggs in half and we started by printing with one egg and color at a time. Obviously with toddlers they might have a different plan! Let them go with it – it’s about the process rather than the end product.
