Who wants to join us? We are going to make Easter Eggs. All instructions below!
This is our biggest collaboration project to date!! We are inviting children from around the world to make an egg and send it to us. We will include every single egg that is sent onto this page – you can have a look at the eggs collected, new ones added each day!
In these crazy times when we need to be together, we thought it would be nice to actually do something together!
Easter Eggs inspired by the Masters!
The eggs will, of course, be flat paper/cardboard eggs and not real eggs…all instructions below!
A few considerations before you send us your eggs:
- Photo of the egg only please. No children in the photo!
- We will include the photo with the FIRST name and country of the child, EG: Bob: USA. If you prefer to remain anonymous that is also completely fine.
- If you send us your photo by email we will delete your email and details as soon as we have placed the photo. Of course, if you want to hear from us again you can always subscribe to our mailing list!
- You can send us your picture on our contact form – click here for the direct link!
- You are also welcome to add your egg to this Facebook post in the comments: click here to go to Facebook.
- Here is the link to our egg collection: we will start adding new eggs every day in April! Start sending!!
How to make an Easter Egg inspired by The Masters!
What materials do you need?
- Decide if you want to paint /draw /color etc and gather your things.
- A printed out Easter Egg Template – or draw your own.
You can make an egg on paper/cardboard / even the inside of a cereal box would be perfect!
Just remember that painting onto paper often makes the paper crumple up – so the thicker the better!
There are two things you need to do:
1. Print out your Easter egg template or draw an egg yourself. Download template here…
If you are drawing your own egg it should take up a full A4 page in size.
2. Choose an artist to inspire your egg and draw/paint/design an egg in their style.
For example, if you choose Van Gogh, you could paint an egg filled with sunflowers as we did.
It is good to talk about the inspiration with children.
The back story always adds a different dimension to the art, it makes it more interesting and it brings it alive.
My Little Rembrandt!
I have added some YouTube links to artists and artwork. YouTube is full of documentaries that go into detail about the art style and the artist for you to use – age-appropriate of course.
Once your egg is dry please take a photo and share it with us!
We would all love to see your art and hear about your inspiration!
