Easter Shake Process Art

Easter Shake Process Art - Learning Through Play

If you are anything like me you will have a good collection of colourful plastic eggs for Easter. They are brilliant for hiding on Easter Egg hunts and filling with sweets as part of Easter treats, however you may be looking for different ways you can play with them. 

We have already had lots of great fun with Easter Egg Marbling Painting. We put a sensory twist on it too so not only was it a great visual the sounds coming from the eggs added to the fun.
Today I am sharing with you a very simple Process Art activity that is really accessible for even the youngest of children! 

We love nothing more than getting messy but sometimes it's fun to try a range of painting techniques. As far as Process Art goes - it's enjoyed often in our home! We particularly LOVE shaving foam painting. Painting on Foil gave a great opportunity for mark making and our first attempt at drip painting was rather mesmerising!

Today we have tried out a Mess Free Painting activity, using items you no doubt already have lying around the home.

Seeing as Easter is looming we have used our eggs to help with painting!

Plastic Easter Eggs

A really simple list of items you will need. I brought my container from a supermarket. I like that it has catches on the sides as its excellent for small hands, practising their fine motor skills as they line up the clips.
Pop your paper inside the container so it's sits around the edges. I cut mine down to size before starting the activity. Squirt colourful paint inside the container. I did find that the less paint you used the more effective the mark making was. Using too much paint soaks the paper and after lots of shaking all the colours turn brown.

Pop inside the Easter Eggs and put your lid securely on top. And shake well. We put on some music at this stage, it was fun to shake along to beat.

You could use this painting technique to explore what happens when you mixing two colours together. It was be a great way to physically create new colours!

The paintings created were great fun! You could use the marbled paper at your construction table to cut up, stick sequins and buttons onto. You could then pop them on the front of cards and make some cards for family and friends.
