Cotton Swab Painted Easter Egg

Easter is less than a month away. We had originally written this post last year, but since most Easter events are canceled this year, we thought we’d come back and do this art project again! We have not decorated real eggs yet this year at our house, but yesterday, we painted a paper egg.

Materials Needed

  • White Paper (We used paper from a big roll of white craft paper)
  • Scissors
  • Paint (We used three colors)
  • Cotton Swabs

I 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. After that, I gave my toddler the paint and let her use the cotton swabs to paint her egg however she wanted.

The cotton swab painting is so much fun for toddlers!

Book Suggestions

Little ones often enjoy when a book is paired with a craft or activity. Here are some suggestions!

If you like this craft, please share it with a friend!

  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

  3. This is such a great idea for crafts for little kids! I am going to do this with my little guy this weekend it looks so fun!

  4. Oh my goodness. I’m reading coloring easter eggs with my kids. I don’t think it’s ever been done without tears or spilled dye.

  5. Ong how cute are these eggs!?! Definitely an activity I will have to try out with my daughter. She would love it
