Sparkly Eggs Process Art

If you need a quick and easy last-minute craft for toddlers or preschoolers, this Sparkly Eggs Process Art is for you!

The set up takes just seconds, the process is super easy, but the results are wonderful!  All my kiddos (2-8 years old) loved the project!  It also provides a chance to experiment with mixing colors, exercise the fine muscles in the hands and fingers, and create something festive!

You only need these Simple Supplies:

* watercolor paints & paintbrushes
* paper
* black marker
* glitter
* optional: construction paper & scissors

Easy How To:

1.  Use the black marker to draw a giant egg on the paper. Older children and preschoolers may want to do this themselves. We also used this time to review the sounds that the letter "e" makes.

2.  Let your children paint the eggs with the watercolors!

3.  When they finish painting, but before the water dries, let them add glitter to their eggs.  If the water has dried, you can drizzle glue on it or give it a very light spritz of water from a squirt bottle (just be careful if you use water because it will mix the colors together).

Ta da!  Gorgeous sparkly eggs!

Optionally, you can cut out the egg and paste it on construction paper for a sturdier background.  

I may share at any of these parties!
