Coloring Easter Eggs with Watercolor

I had every intention of bringing out the dye kit for coloring our Easter eggs this year but I changed my mine at the last minute when I saw the beautiful colors of this set of watercolors I just got. The clincher was the resounding “yeah!!!” when I shared my idea with the grand kids. They were all in!

Creating art with their little hands is not a new thing to them as I shared in my post about cultivating creativity in kids. The prep work for this project was simple! I boiled and cooled 2 dozen eggs earlier in the day and turned this into an after school project. I spread out a sheet of paper, filled a container of water and laid out a handful of various sized inexpensive brushes next to the watercolor tray. The kids did the rest! Well, almost! I couldn’t resist playing with the paints too!!

Micah painted some eyes and rosy cheeks so I added some hair and a tiny mouth. A little collaborative project.
