Paper Mache Easter Egg | Art Lesson for Kids | Beverly Gurganus Fine Art

 

Does your kiddos like to get messy?  Well, I got a lesson just for them because this paper mache Easter lesson will be a little messy (ok a lot messy) and gooey, but they will love it!!!

I spent all last week prepping for another art lesson to share with you and your mini artists to do this week, and it’s perfect timing for Easter.  This one has been a little tricky for me because it was my first time since elementary school that I have attempted paper mache.  It took some trial-and-error learning what to do and what not to do.  I will first give you the step by step of what I did to create my egg and then share with you some tips on how I would change things to make it easier or more child friendly.  If you are feeling up to the challenge, then you can follow the original instructions.

I’ve had some mamas reach out and ask if I would be doing more art lessons because they really enjoyed getting them.  I felt encouraged to learn that my lessons were useful and appreciated, but I also felt a bit guilty for not continuing them even after the stay home order was lifted and summer vacation began.  I’m grateful for those who expressed their gratefulness and I look forward to providing more art lesson ideas.
