Easter Eggs and Cookie Cutter Paintings

If you are in search of creative materials for your kids to paint with this Easter, try cookie cutters and plastic eggs. There are so many types and sizes to choose from! These simple paintings are perfect for preschool and elementary age children.

Total Time: 20 minutes to paint and a couple hours to dry

Yield: 3 paintings




  1. Add different paint colors to two paper plates. Allow space between colors, as the paint will spread. Dip one half of a plastic Easter egg in any color. Then press the egg to the paper. Add as many of that color circles as you like.
  2. Use additional egg halves to add different color circles. You can keep the circles seperate or overlap them. Different size egg halves could also be used!

  4. Use smaller tin cookie cutters to make colorful rabbits and chicks! Same as with the eggs, dip the cookie cutters in the paint and press them all over the page.
  5. If you use larger cookie cutters, you can leave them as outlines like the smaller ones. To make them more colorful, try making them two different colors! Or you can use paint brushes to fill them in with details, like the main photo.
