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.
