Let’s be honest, making art with kids can be intimidating. The mess and the stress sometimes make us want to skip these art activities altogether.
However, studies show that art allows kids to express themselves, develop creativity, and build problem-solving skills that help in every area of life!

I love that this activity is based on the idea of process art. Process art is all about exploration and creativity. There’s no right or wrong way to do it. Every Easter egg will turn out differently, and that’s OK!

Get Creative with Credit Card Art!
First, drop dots or lines of paint on the poster board. To keep an Easter egg look, try creating stripes with different colors or patterns.
Some paint tends to slide off the shiny side of the poster board. If you find your paint won’t stick, flip the poster board over to the paper, textured side!
We used neon tempera paint for our eggs. I love how the bright colors pop!
Scrape the Paint with a Credit Card!
Next, use an old credit card, or gift card, to scrape the paint.
Try to scrape in the direction of the stripes to avoid mixing up the colors!
I helped my daughter reach some of hers (because this paper egg is seriously huge!), but she loved scraping the colors together!
However, it’s totally OK if your child scrapes in all different directions.
It will still turn out beautiful!
My son loved seeing the dots of paint pop through on his blue background.
All that paint has to go somewhere, right?
It’s a great idea to lay paper towels down to soak up the excess paint!
You can also wipe down the credit card in-between scrapes to cut down on the mess factor.
