Color Diffusing Easter Egg Artwork

Make beautiful color diffusing Easter Egg Artwork by using Roylco’s R15213 Color Diffusing Paper™! 

Age: 3+

Duration: 5 minutes for painting and assembling, couple of hour for drying.

Learning Objectives: Use fine motor skills to squeeze paint from pipettes onto paper. Learn about the process of diffusion with beautiful Color Diffusing™ technology.

You’ll Need:

• R15213 Color Diffusing Paper™

• R54470 Junior Heart Paint Pipettes

• Watercolor paint

• Paint tray

• A Cup of water

• Cardstock

Use white chalk to draw an outline of an egg on to Roylco’s R15213 Color Diffusing Paper™ . Then create some patterns to design your egg. I also wrote ” Happy Easter” in the middle of the egg. Encourage children to use their imagination to create their own designs.  

Next, place the paper in the paint tray. Wet the R15213 Color Diffusing Paper™, and use Roylco’s R54470 Junior Heart Paint Pipettes to drip liquid watercolor paint over top of the wet surface. Encourage children to experiment with different color palettes. It’s lots of fun for children to play with different colors and watch the colors flow and blend to create spectacular patterns and effects.. This is a great time for children to learn about color mixing, ask the children to discuss the effects of color mixing.

Let the artwork dry in the paint tray for couple of hours.  You can also use a blow dryer to dry the artwork. You can see the result is unexpected and beautiful.

The color diffusing Easter egg artwork is almost ready. Once the paint is dry, you can cut the egg out and glue it on to the cardstock.

Make Cross Weaving Mats for this Easter !

Let’s make cross weaving mats for this Easter! With this simple project, the art of weaving colorful strips of paper through a bright Cross Weaving Mat promotes hand-eye coordination!

Age: 4+

Duration: 8-10 minutes

Learning Outcomes: Explore cultural traditions and symbols. Practice folding and taping. Exercise Fine motor skills. Create a take-home craft.

You’ll Need:

Weave a colorful Cross!
• Begin by gently separating the weaving strips from the panel and loosening the die-cut slats of the cross. Allow four strips per cross.

• Start by weaving the vertical area of the cross. Insert a strip through the slats of the
mat and weave in and out. When you have finished the first strip, start the second but
alternate the “in and out” pattern each time. A wavy, checkerboard pattern will appear.

• Trim off the excess weaving strip lengths and use to complete the cross bar of the cross.Carefully glue or tape the ends down on the backside of the weaving mat. Notice the different color combination you have created on the reverse side.

Tape your finished cross to a window for inspirational window art or decorate a Bible
classroom doorway. Use several Cross Weaving Mats to decorate a bulletin board for Easter!
