CIY Staff Tips:

  • To draw the outline of the eggs and basket, we used a Crayola Coloured Pencil adorned with a Flower Pencil Topper, another colourful CIY project!


Step 1

Draw egg shapes on a piece of cardstock with your favorite creative tool.

Step 2

To decorate a splatter egg, load a generous amount of washable paint onto 2 paint brushes and flick the paint at the cardstock.

Step 3

To decorate a sponge paint egg, pour washable paint onto a disposable plate. Dip a sponge into the paint and dab onto the cardstock, filling the egg.

Step 4

To decorate a watercolour reveal egg, draw a design on the egg with a white crayon. Brush washable watercolours over the egg to reveal your design.

Step 5

To decorate a scratch art egg, colour the egg with oil pastels. Add a layer of black oil pastel over the entire egg. Use the rounded edge of a paper clip to scratch the black layer and reveal the colour underneath.

Step 6

Draw a basket and grass on construction paper with your favorite creative tool. Cut out eggs, basket, and grass with scissors. Glue together with glue stick to assemble the basket.

Step 7

Write a fun Easter message on the basket with metallic markers!
