Egg Painting – The Messy Way

When most people think of egg painting, it’s a rather sedate activity where you delicately and precisley decorate a hard boiled egg for an event such as Easter. We, however see it as an opportunity for messy play.

We got some plastic eggs from the local pound shop, ones which can be separated at the middle to form two halves, (like the plastic bit inside a Kinder Egg, but Egg shaped) and filled them with thinned down poster paint. Put a big sheet of paper onto our tuff spot tray and let the kids crack, shake and pour all over it.

If you think this is a “cracking” idea, are “EGGcited” by the prospect of lots of mess, or your kids do a really “EGGcellent” painting, please get in touch, we’d be “EGGstatic” to hear from you.*

*Many apologies for the awful Egg puns, won’t happen again, sorry.
