Let’s design some fun colorful eggs. This time, we’ll try using watercolor pens to create.

You’ll need:

  • Watercolor paper or thick paper (we used a paper plate)
  • Watercolor pens
  • Black market (for outlining your drawing)
  • Imagination
  • Optional: Table covering or smock to protect table and clothes

Getting Started

Watch video for inspiration…

If you have trouble getting inspired, just look at some egg decorating ideas online or in books. You might also ask yourself:

  • What type of colorful egg will I draw?
  • What colors will I use? Pastels or bright colors?
  • What will be in my drawing? Grass, trees, flowers, animals, people, etc.?

Remember, focus on the process and having fun!
