Easter Bunny + Easter Egg with Pom-Pom Paint Brush

This elementary-age oriented Easter craft is an excellent combination of process-art and directed-art.

Process Art (Stage 1): For the expressive background paintings, the instructions are to paint and have fun; no other guidelines or prompting need to be given. When we did this project, my kids had no idea what the end project would be.

Directed Art (Stage 2): After completing our Pom-Pom free-form, experimental paintings, we decided to use them in an Easter-themed adult-directed art project. Read on to see what we made, and to grab a FREE template!

Here’s what we did. Enjoy!

Finished Easter Egg/Bunny Artwork

Pom-Pom Brush Painting

Today’s project starts by painting a child-directed pattern on a sheet of paper using a Pom-Pom Paintbrush. Encourage your child’s experimental mark-making with this unique paintbrush. Circles, stripes, blotches, patterns, and each child’s unique paint selection make each design distinct.

Tip: When the pom-pom becomes completely paint-saturated, switch out the pom-pom with a new fresh, puffy one.

To make your pom-pom brush, simply pinch a pom-pom in the “mouth” of the clothespin.
Use your pom-pom brush to make colorful stripes, lines, circles, dots and patterns.

Easter Bunny + Egg Printable

While your pom-pom paintings are drying, you can start on the second part of this craft: the Easter Bunny + Easter Egg cutout.

We made a FREE PRINTABLE for you to use as a tracer and cutting pattern for the Easter Bunny/Easter Egg design combination.

Instructions

  • Print your tracer.
  • Cut out the “Easter Egg” shape on your tracer printout.
  • Use the tracer to trace/transfer the design onto your craft’s piece of paper. We recommend using construction paper or cardstock.
  • Cut out the “Easter Egg” shape on your final design.
  • Decorate your bunny’s face, maybe even include large googly eyes.
  • Don’t forget to add details to the inside of the bunny ears!
  • When your pom-pom painted designs are dry, glue them to the back of your bunny.
  • Show off your design by displaying it prominently in your home or school!
