Easter is a one day holiday, but it’s one that can be super busy! With all the excitement, not to mention a little candy, it can be hard to get the kids to sit still and be quiet. This printable Easter art coloring page is the perfect activity for a quiet time and relaxing or just for fun.
Many years ago my family’s Easter traditions included going to church in the morning, a big lunch, an egg hunt, and then family photos in the afternoon. Sometimes we also did a big supper with ham. It was too busy for preschoolers, especially ones who didn’t like crowds or a change in routine.
When you add in a few chocolate eggs and marshmallow chicks, it’s easy to see how our holiday usually ended with cranky crying kids.
Since then we have simplified our traditions to focus on only the most important things. While that’s different for many families, there is one thing we all enjoy: spending time with loved ones.
Coloring is a fun and calming activity, whether you’re a preschooler or an adult. This printable Easter page has lots of little details that can be any color you want.
I made two different printables this time. One is a coloring page and the other is already colored in, in case you just want a pretty printable to decorate.
If you’re looking for candy alternatives, coloring pages and accessories are a fun and simple choice. We like:
- scented markers
- colored pencils (beyond the basic primary colors)
- pencil sharpener
- small stencils
- ink stamps
Whether you add this Easter art printable to your child’s basket or just use it for festive décor, I hope you enjoy it and have a happy Easter.
