Painting eggs is an excellent Easter craft for toddlers.

Materials Needed

A dozen boiled eggs (cooled)

Water based poster paints

Paint brushes

Old Egg Cup


This is a messy but fun craft that all ages love - make sure you're wearing protective clothing like an apron or old clothes and don't forget to place old newspapers  or a drop cloth over the area you'll painting on.


Place a egg in an old egg cup and have the children freely paint with brushes.


*Jazz up the eggs by adding glitter to the paint.


Have fun, and don't forget to share your results with everyone here on The Daycare Network.
