I only have a few Easter decorations and, unfortunately, I have no idea where they are. Luckily, I’ve got two girls that are always willing to make new decorations for me. I set up a simple art invitation for the girls one day and now I have two beautiful Easter garlands.
Disclosure: CraftProjectIdeas.com provided us with the awesome watercolors for this project. All ideas are my own.
I love surprising the girls with a fun project after school. This time, I set up a simple art invitation. I cut Easter egg shapes from plain white paper and set them out along with watercolors and black permanent markers. Their challenge was to decorate the eggs for Easter.
They got to work. The girls decided to draw their designs using the permanent marker. You will want to make sure you use a permanent marker for this project. If you use washable markers, the watercolors will smear the marker lines.
Once they had their designs drawn, the girls used our watercolors to paint their eggs. We had striped eggs, polka dots, flowers, a ladybug, geometric designs, and more. Each one was different!
When the eggs were dry, I used clear tape to attach them to a string and make the garland. We’ve got them hanging over a window. Yay! We’ve got Easter decorations now!
This was such an easy art invitation to set up for the girls. They loved creating and spent a long afternoon at the table. I even had to cut out more Easter egg shapes because we ran out before they were done creating. If you’re looking for a fun Easter project, look no further than this simple idea.
