*Here is a simple and easy recipe for edible finger paint that can be used with this activity. All you need is any brand of vanilla yogurt and food coloring. Dish out the yogurt into small dishes and add a drop of food coloring. Mix well.

 

Start by putting paint and a half of plastic egg onto paper plates or into shallow bowls. Use as many colors as you like. Show your child how to dip the egg into the paint, then how to stamp it onto the paper. As your child creates their artwork, talk to them about the colors they are using, the texture of the paint, the texture of the eggs, and the shape the stamps make. When finished, allow the artwork to dry and display it where your child can see it.
