Because we used tempera paint instead of food coloring or another food-safe dye, we used artificial eggs. We found some DIY Easter Eggs at Walmart with the other Easter stuff while we were out shopping one day and thought painting them would be all kinds of fun.

There’s just something about getting messy and the little guy is obviously all about it. He painted his Easter eggs along with just about everything else. He definitely had a blast, though.

We used pink, red, yellow, and green for our Egg Painting Process Art. I usually let him choose the colors that he wants to use and this particular activity was no exception.

Preschoolers love to mix colors and I actually considered giving him red, yellow, and blue and letting him explore color mixing too while he was at it.
