Sticker Resist Easter Eggs

These Sticker Resist Easter Eggs are so easy to make even for the youngest of kids!! And what kid does not love stickers.
Putti loved the Sticker Resist Painting we did for Valentines day. She had made some prints too. For more details and step by step photo visit that post. 
I first drew an egg shape on the cardstock, so as to give an idea where to place the stickers. Then gave Putti some foam stickers. Foam stickers or any 3D stickers work well as they are easier to peel afterwards. She placed them however she pleased, peeling the back off the stickers itself is a great joyful activity for her. See the 3 blue oval stickers there, its our little family according to Putti:) And then paint over it. using a sponge brush helps little hands to cover larger area quickly. 
 Wait until the paint dries completely and then peel off the stickers to reveal your beautiful artwork. And then I cut around the edge of  the egg shape.
 We then glued them onto construction papers.
 Putti wanted to do more, but we did not have more foam stickers. Then i remembered this resist painting at No Time for Flashcards. So, I got our painter's tape and tore into little bits. Putti pressed them all over the egg shape, painted over it and after it dried peeled it off. Loved the rugged edges here.
We read the Book The Easter Egg by Jan Brett
 

If the bunny Hoppi, can make the best Easter egg, he will get to help the Easter Rabbit deliver the eggs on Easter morning. But it is not so easy. Discouraged, he goes into the woods to think when a blue robin’s egg tumbles out of its nest. Hoppi keeps it safe and warm until the baby bird hatches, and when the Easter Rabbit arrives, he chooses the empty blue eggshell to reward Hoppi for his kindness.

Oh these are pretty cool ideas! I am thinking of chalkboard eggs this year...but if only I could get the fabulous colors that you are showing off on this blog!

Thank you Reshma! You mean using chalkboard paints? I saw a recipe to make your own chalk paints in any color..

Rosie loves stickers. We will have to make some of these! :)

Love this! I will be featuring this next week for sure, and plan to share on FB. So fantastic...can't wait to do this with Aodhan this week.

This is just up J's street, stickers, paint and then peeling the stickers off as well.

M and M haven't been playing with stickers. We have an entire box full. I bet this will get them interested again. :)

Great idea! Just posted about the sticker and tape resist tutorials together on Craft Gossip!! Have you tried any of these techniques on real eggs yet?

We do a lot of art/crafts with my toddler where he uses a glue stick and pastes items on paper (usually items we've cut out from cereal boxes and such). I'm thinking I could cut shapes out of the boxes, let him glue them on, paint over and then pull them off. He's always pasting and pulling off when we do our glue stick art activities, so it just might work! Might be an activity coming to my blog soon!

Those turned out so cute! I definitely need to try this with my boys.

Thank you for linking this up to Tuesday Tots and letting you know that I'm featuring this over on Rainy Day Mum this week.

Stickers and Paint are a hit and combined these were super hit ! Hope you kids like them too. Thanks
