This wood slice Easter craft for kids of any age is so much fun. It just requires a few supplies and your children will have a great time using their imaginations to create bright and beautiful eggs. These wood slice eggs can be set outside or inside.
I was going through some of my decor the other day, and found these chunky wood slices that I had used as chargers for a tablescape I share about here. I love when things can serve many purposes, and when I came back across them, I thought they would be a fun craft for my children (6-16 years old) to turn into painted wood slice Easter eggs. They had the best time and I loved seeing how each one was unique to them.
Wood slices (you can find mine online here).
Acrylic paint (this is a great set here).
Pencil if your child wants to first sketch their design out before painting.
Water container (we used mason jars)
Paper plates for paint
Paint one side of the wood slice whatever color your child prefers. My girls preferred to have a white background. I used a sponge paintbrush for this step of the painting; it covered it quickly and easily. Then, let dry!
We used paper plates to squeeze our paints onto, and old mason jars for our water holders. Grab some paper towels to so they can dry off their brushes in between color changes. Have them use their imagination to design their Easter eggs! There is no wrong way to do this.
Let the Easter eggs dry and then set them up to bring brightness to your home or outdoor spaces. if you choose to set them outside, make sure you seal them with an outdoor weather protector. I recommend this one.
