Sponge Painted Easter Eggs

I can't believe Easter is Sunday!  Seriously where has the time gone?  Since I'm not in the classroom my mind is pretty much baby this and baby that at the moment so I find myself having "whoa" moments when I realize that the next holiday is already upon us. Yikes!

If you are in the classroom this week I'm sure it's full of spring and Easter fun so I wanted to share one of my favorite, oh so simple, Easter crafts... Sponge Painted Paper Eggs!  Variations of this little number can be spotted all over Pinterest and I love that the finished paper egg can be used as hanging wall art, added to a card, used as a writing prompt or even as an addition to an Easter bag!

So how do I make this craft?

1. Collect these Materials:
- Egg template (Grab various sizes for Free at this website!)  I like to print on card stock for better durability.
- Paint in a variety of colors. (Basic liquid tempera works just fine.)
- Sponges (Cut into various sizes)
- Plates or something to put the paint on.

- Clothespins if you prefer students to not get their hands all dirty. Ha-Ha
- Painters tape if you'd like to add spots, stripes etc.

2.  Prep and Model:

3. Let your students create their own eggs!

4. Let them dry and then cut them out.  Use the eggs as decoration pieces, writing inspiration etc.  Add torn paper or a ribbon bow to dress them up more.  The possibilities are endless!

And that's it!  Use the eggs however you see fit!  This activity is perfect for a simple art center.  Happy Hump Day!
