Easter Cards

I think Easter Cards are a lovely thing to be presented with at Easter.  I love my kids putting their personal touches on things and they can really do whatever they want with cards.  For this activity though we decided to use "Food Colour" for painting to make our eggs: 

(see earlier post "Food colour painting"

What you will need:
  • Cardstock / Coloured Card
  • White paper
  • Food Colour mixed with a little water
  • Paint Brushes
  • Embelishments / glitter / ribbon etc
  • Scissors / ruler
  1. Put paint all over the paper randomly.  Wait to dry and then cut into egg shapes.
  2. Fold a sheet of coloured paper in half.
  3. Tear around the edges of another piece of coloured card so that it fits within the dimensions of the front of the card.  (use a ruler to use as a tearing guide or use scissors if you wish)
  4. Add your egg shapes where you wish.
  5. Stick on your embelishments / glitter / ribbon etc.
Easy pain free activity the kids and card receiver will love.  Here are some different examples:
