I can remember the first story I heard about process art. I was appalled! Why would anyone just let their child get paint all over themselves? Now I have to laugh at myself because this one of my own children’s favorite activities. We love process art, and our most recent drip painting Easter egg art activity is one of the best ever. I even let my children get paint all over their clothes.
Here is a close-up of the awesomeness!
If you need a simple activity with little prep, this Easter Egg Process Art Activity is guaranteed to please! I spelled out all the tiny details over at Pre-K Pages, one of my favorite places on the internet for great ideas and activities for children. I also shared one of my favorite tips about using paint for process art.
If you are super familiar with process art, you know that the activity will transform. What started out as drip art soon become rock painting.
Notice the paint all over his hands and some on his face? I would have been cringing about this 10 years ago. I think it’s beautiful now!
Instead of seeing a mess, I look at that smile. And it says, “Mom, this is building my creativity. It is good for my heart, and I am interacting with textures that my body craves.” It sure beats finding him in a bag of flour with it strewn across the kitchen. He’s never done that for the record ;).
Our open-ended plastic Easter egg art activity even made way for a paint tsunami!
Then that opened the floodgates for a painting extravaganza. Paint all over the driveway! No longer was the paper their canvas, but it soon became the cement –again, another wonderful and inviting texture!
We absolutely enjoyed this drip art Easter egg process art experience, and now I can’t wait for the next one!
