Draw an Easter egg in crayon onto a piece of white paper. Add squiggles, lines, dots, swirls, or whatever you think should go on your egg.
Get out watercolour paint, or watered down tempera paint, in the prettiest spring colours you can find. Paint over the entire egg. Don't worry about going over the lines.
When it's dry, cut out your egg and glue it onto a card, a backing, or make a bunch and create an Easter banner.
