Ollie’s Easter Eggs

We’ve been eagerly waiting for a convenient time to dive into some festive Easter crafts this week, however with a few sick kiddos home from school those plans quickly went out the window. We improvised by pulling together a craft with items we had on hand, and turned this off-kilter day into something special.


Using acrylic paints we experimented with color mixing, texture and stamping. Surprisingly, painting on a recycled paper bag made those colors pop even more!

Once dry, we cut our pages into strips and glued them to a piece of cardstock. Then we cut the entire thing into an egg shape, glued it onto another piece of cardstock and added some paper grass as a nest.

This simple craft paired nicely with the book Ollie’s Easter Eggs by Olivier Dunrea. Although admittedly, Miss A (age 2) was the only one really interested in the board book. It is much more appropriate for toddlers and preschoolers, but fun nonetheless.


Do you have any last minute Easter crafts planned?
