Art is so much fun and children can learn so much by doing it. Art teaches patience, colour recognition, imagination, creativity and is a wonderful sensory opportunity.
Today in our household we made an Easter egg canvas as a gift for the in-laws. They’ve said they don’t want chocolate and my son asks to paint everyday so I thought, why not?
What you’ll need:
- 1 canvas of any size (we used one a little smaller than an A4 piece of paper).
- Sticky tape
- Circular stickers
- Acrylic paints (that’s what we used – I’m sure poster paint is ok too)
The sticky tape was tricky to work with so I would try something different next time – perhaps an egg shaped cardboard cutout.
I placed a range of colours all over the canvas and let my son go!
Lots of fun!

I used tweezers to remove the tape and stickers.
Final product: An Easter Egg canvas gift!
