Circle Art Easter Egg Activity

This simple Circle Art Easter Egg Activity can be adapted to suit children of all ages and explores printing techniques, line work, colour matching, basic colour theory and shapes.

With the aide of our handy printable Easter Egg Template, this project can be largely child-led and I would encourage Arty Crafty Kids to explore this concept in their own way, using this post as a guide only.

For example, Arty Crafty Kids can play with the shape of their paper rolls and give it little squish to create an oval ‘egg’ shape.

The white space could also be filled with a variety of different mediums and techniques – finger painting might be really fun!

Step 1:

Step 1:

Download and the print the Easter Egg Template onto white card stock.

Spread the black paint across the plate to create an even layer and dip one end of the paper tube into the paint. Give the tube a few twists to ensure the edges are covered.

Following the edge of the Easter Egg Outline, begin printing overlapping circles.

Step 3:

Let’s add colour!

Using your Arty Crafty Kids favourite medium, fill in the white space with colours.

If your Arty Crafty Kids are using watercolours, there are a couple of techniques they may enjoy exploring.

They could experiment with a wet-on-wet application, whereby a light layer of water is spread across the paper first with the paint applied on top.

Alternatively, or as well as, they can mix water directly with the paints. The amount of water used will affect the vibrancy of the colour i.e. less water will create bolder colours; more water will create lighter shades and are more likely to blend with surrounding colours.

Step 4:

Continue filling the white space with various colours.

This is a great opportunity for Arty Crafty Kids to explore and play with colour.

Try mixing primary colours (red, blue, yellow) to create new shades. How many new colours can your Arty Crafty Kids make?

Step 6:

Let’s add a colour matching element!

Using buttons, sequins or/and pom-poms, match their colours to the correct painted area.
