Easter Egg Painting: We decided to brave the task of Egg painting with the toddlers, yes I know it sounds a little far-fetched but I’m delighted to say we all had a wonderfully messy time.
Eggs (we used Duck eggs because they are larger but any eggs will do)
Child friendly paints (water based)
Small bowls of water
Lots of tea-towels to mop up the water
Flour (if you’re using large eggs)
Two more small bowls or egg cups
Egg preparation: You can either hard-boil the egg or blow out the contents, we chose the latter 'Click here' to see how.
Painting the eggs: We decided to let the toddlers warm-up by letting them play with small bowls of water, the paint, some brushes.
We stood the large eggs in small bowls of flour as they were too big for egg cups and this also provided a soft cushion for the fragile canvas.
Florence and Oliver enjoyed playing with the flour as much as they enjoyed painting the eggs. Great way to balance an egg! Make sure to lay down a plastic sheet or newspaper!
We let Florence and Oliver have creative control when decorating...
"Florrie just keep on smiling and they will NEVER know we have poured flour everywhere"
Mummies stayed close and Nanna was on stand-by for emergency mop-ups...
We celebrated our successful egg painting with a run around the beautiful grounds of the Crabtree and finished off with warm babychino’s (warm milk in espresso cups)
