Paint colorful paper eggs with watercolor resist art for a simple and easy Easter craft your kids will love to make!
Updated March 2023
Want an easy yet lovely Easter egg art activity to do with your kids?
Oil pastel resist is one of our favorite watercolor resist techniques, and probably the one we use most commonly.
So, we tried an Easter themed version of it as an art invitation for our kids to do after school.
Here’s how they used it to paint Easter egg after Easter egg.
Easy Easter Craft
*We cut the egg-shapes out free hand, but there are plenty of printable templates online if you would rather be a bit more precise.
- Draw designs
First, draw designs on your Easter egg paper with the oil pastels. You can draw with white to have a magical reveal with the paint or use colors. We drew with neon oil pastels for a pop of color!
- Add paint!
Then, paint over your oil pastel drawing with watercolors.
Make as many eggs as you’d like. If your kids are anything like ours, they’ll be cranking out the Easter eggs!
Continue drawing and painting your Easter eggs until you have enough for a bunting.
To make the bunting, we simply punched holes at the top of the eggs and tied them with twine. You can also attach them to a display wire with mini clothespins or even use washi tape to tape them up on a wall.
