Simple Easter Painting for Kids!
When I saw these egg and flower shaped paper doilies at the dollar store, I just knew we could come up with lots of creative ways to use them. Our favorite way: creating beautiful Easter doily paintings. Check it out…

Kids Easter Doily Resist Painting
- paper doilies (any shape would work, but eggs and flowers rock!)
- colored cardstock or construction paper
- a sponge brush or small sponge
- kids’ paint (any colors would do, but limiting the color palette might make a better end result)
- Use a few small tape loops on the back of your doilies to tape them down on the paper. (They don’t need to be very sticky, because you don’t want them to rip the paper later. So you might need to remove some of the stickiness from the tape first by pressing it onto your clothing or fingers.)
- Use the sponge or sponge brush to dab paint all over the doilies, making sure to cover all of the doilies and their edges.
- Carefully remove the doilies and WALLAH! Simple & Beautiful Easter Art.
What would YOU do with these paper doilies if you had them? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

I love this idea. We buy those doilies form The Dollar Tree too, and I never thought to do that with them. Finding you through the Kid Blogger Network. I am loving your site, and looking forward to connecting more here and through KBN! 🙂
