Tin Foil Easter Egg Art

Mar 13, 2023 | DIY Crafts, DIY Holiday Crafts, Easter

This Easter egg art made of tin foil is bright and colorful, and it’s a great way for kids to show off their creativity by making a one-of-a-kind design for their egg.

This week, I’ve been eager to try new things. I fell in love earlier this week painting newspaper with watercolors, and now we are using tin foil, also known as aluminum foil, which is a completely new material for us. This is the perfect easy and enjoyable Easter art activity for your kids!



This Easter egg art project isn’t just fun for preschoolers! Kids of all ages, and even adults, will love coming up with a unique and colorful design on their egg.

Read the simple instructions below for how to set up and create your own tin foil Easter eggs.

Supplies needed for this Easter Egg Art Project:

  • cardboard
  • scissors
  • tin foil (aluminum foil)
  • Sharpie markers


Instructions for making Tin Foil Easter Egg Art

1. Cut out an egg shape from your cardboard. I drew the shape for my pre-schooler and she cut it out herself.

2. Tear off a piece of tin foil from your roll. Lay your egg on top of it and then fold the tin foil edges over the egg all over so the front of the egg is completely covered in the foil.

4. When they are finished drawing designs, they can use all of the Sharpie markers to trace over their designs and add any more details that they’d like.

The Sharpie markers look so bright and vibrant against the shiny tin foil. My daughter covered her egg with the dull side of the tin foil but I chose to use the shinier side. As you can see, both worked fantastic so either is just fine.
