Easter Coloring With Your Preschooler: Making an Egg Basket

When it comes to art projects with your preschooler, the mantra is less is more. After all, your child is just beginning to explore materials and get creative. Projects that are too complicated will only lead to feelings of frustration and boredom. Too much adult interference will make her feel controlled and incompetent.

Your child most likely will not grow up to become a professional artist. But she will grow up to lead a life that's often hectic and harried. Having art as an outlet – whether it's coloring, painting, or sculpting – will serve her well, relieving stress and bringing joy.

Coloring is one of the best and simplest ways for a youngster to use her imagination, develop independence, and enhance fine motor skills. Here's an easy and cute project for you and your child to make together. It will brighten up your home for Easter, making your child feel proud.

1. Cut out a large basket shape, using scrapbook or construction paper.

2. Cut out eggs from white paper.

3. Let your child color the eggs as she pleases, experimenting with different colors, shapes, and lines.

4. Help her glue the eggs to her basket. 

Find a place to display the basket for all to see. Happy Easter!
