This elementary-age oriented Easter craft is a great combination of process-art and directed-art. We started the project with an experimental painting. There was no prompt or end-project in mind. The kids were told to paint and to have fun. Only after we were done with our Pom-Pom painting did we decide to use our paintings in an Easter-themed directed-art project.
Here’s what we did. Enjoy!
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 to experiment making circles, stripes, and patterns with this unique paintbrush. Each child’s color selection and design will be beautifully different.
Tip: When the pom-pom becomes completely saturated with paint, just switch out the pom-pom for a new fresh, puffy one.
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.
- 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!
