Looking for Easter inspiration? Here is an art activity I did with Baobao last year.
This week Baobao and I have been celebrating Ostara and preparing for Easter. On Monday we decorated wooden eggs purchased from Craftshapes.
We got into our painting clothes and I set the paint out in a way that Baobao could access herself.
Baobao enjoyed mixing the colours and dabbing the paint on to the eggs.
This activity is a great way for children to join in with preparations for Easter.
I narrated what Baobao was doing at every opportunity, giving her access to vocabulary she might not usually hear.
I helped a little, painting a base colour on to the eggs.
Baobao then decorated on top.
Our finished eggs.
I noticed that Baobao had really enjoyed painting the tuff spot, while decorating the eggs. Once the eggs were finished, we had some free sensory play.
