I have a quick and easy Easter egg art project for you today. Tape resist art is one of my favourite kinds of art project because it can be done by even the smallest children and the results are always fun!
For this one, the easiest thing to do is to print or draw an Easter shape (I’m using an egg shape for this example) right onto a piece of sticker paper or wide masking tape. Stick it onto your dollar store canvas, or if you’re using paper paint the entire piece with white first and let it dry before sticking the shape on, so the sticker comes off easily. Press the edges down well.
Hand your child a brush and paint, or let them finger paint.
Let it dry, then peel off the sticker. Letting it dry is the hardest part and one that we have never managed without taking a peek, but you get a better shape with crisper edges if you don’t touch it! Or so I’m told.
At this point, older children can, if they desire, decorate the egg with sticker dots, more paint, the dreaded glitter, or anything else you can agree on.
