These cute transparent eggs were found in at a Dollar Store. They are being used in a toddler room.

The children worked on a large egg shape, dipping the ends of paper towel tubes into pastel colors and printing onto the paper.   

Plastic eggs dipped in matching paint
This is a color transfer art project. The children paint their large white paper egg shape with vinegar. Next they lay small pieces of tissue  paper (bleeding) onto the wet vinegar. Let their work dry then peal the tissue paper off to reveal the colors.

Easter Display

This is a nice Easter display that’s a three step process. First the kiddos paint paper eggs with a mixture of shaving cream and glue. The teacher, Miss Jenna mixed in a bit of paint to get pastel colors.

Then Miss Jenna cuts out a basket and begins getting the grass ready.

Last we added our Easter baskets and grass. Ready for the Easter Bunny!

Easter Fun

If your school is like ours there are thousands of plastic eggs around. We dumped them into the sensory table for a huge matching challenge.

Indoor Egg Hunt

Here in the North East we often have to hunt for our Easter eggs indoors. If Easter is early there might still be snow on the ground! So for the little ones we hide our eggs in plain sight.

Cotton Bunnies 

Simply cut out the center of  paper plates, use the center for the ears. Just cut the center circle in half  and add the pink part. Now add the cotton balls. Last add Popsicle stick on back, masking tape worked best for us. We’re using these for our Easter parade!
