Cotton Swab Painted Easter Egg

Easter is just over two weeks away! We have not decorated real eggs yet in our house, but today, we painted a paper egg.

Materials Needed

  • White Paper
  • Scissors
  • Paint (We used three colors)
  • Cotton Swabs
  • A Rubber Band

We started by cutting out an egg shape. If your little one is able to use scissors, you can draw the shape and let them do the cutting. We also wrapped the rubber band around the cotton swabs.

We helped our toddler dip the cotton swaps in the paint and let her paint on the egg.

The cotton swaps are a super fun way for toddlers to paint. We just let our daughter paint until she was done. The end result looks a bit more like a dinosaur egg than it does an Easter egg, but we love unique toddler art!

  1. Oh I bet the kids would love to paint with cotton swabs like this. It looks like something different than paint brushes like they always use, and gives a different look. What a fun idea!


  2. This looks like such a fun and mess free craft. Although my toddler would somehow find a way to get paint on everything hahaha so cute
