Decorating eggs is a sure sign of Easter and for me, Easter means SPRING!! I am SOOOOO ready for spring this year!
We are adding some visual motor integration practice to traditional egg decorating today with a fun drawing activity that will result in unique, beautiful, hand-drawn eggs.
Print off a few of our free printables and throw a bunch of markers on the table for an afternoon of springtime fun!
What You’ll Need:
-Markers or crayons in springy colors
What to do:
Print the blank egg template (one for each child playing) and the two die pages. Cut out the die and tape or glue them together.
Give each child a blank egg and then get rolling! Have kids take turns. Each time they take a turn, the kids will roll both die, one to see which pattern lines they will add to their eggs and the other to see how many of those pattern lines to add.
Continue taking turns until the eggs are decorated! No two eggs will turn out alike!
How to change it up:
– Take it outside — use sidewalk chalk to draw a large egg outline on the driveway. Use the drawing prompts as they described above to create big, bold, unique driveway art to welcome Easter guests!
– Pack some hand strengthening punch into this activity by having your child squeeze bottles of puffy paint over top of the lines she drew on her egg! This will give the egg a 3D effect!
– Do you have a child that needs to work on fine motor control or needs a bit of sensory feedback to stay focused? Try this same activity with the Squiggle Wiggle Writer!
