Method:

  1. We used Christmas bells inside our plastic Easter egg to make the egg magnetic. Drop few Christmas bells inside the plastic egg and close the egg.
  2. Place the paper inside the cardboard box.
  3. Put few drops of paints on the paper. Place the magnetic egg on the paper.Easter art activity ideas for kids
  4. Drag the egg using a magnet from below the box. I chose a very light weight box so that my preschool could hold the box in one hand and drag the magnet with another.Magnet activity ideas for preschoolers
  5. The egg would roll in the paint and paint the paper.
  6. Add more colors if required and repeat the process. I usually stick with two or three colors per paper.

We talked about why the egg could be dragged by magnet when bells are kept inside it. It is such a simple and fun idea. What do you think?
