This coffee filter Easter egg is the perfect Easter craft for kids of all ages. It’s ideal for preschool and kindergarten children, but older kids enjoy making these as well.

They are easy to make at home or school, use affordable craft supplies, and only take about 20 minutes (plus drying time).

I love how many different ways you can decorate with them when finished too!

Spring Coffee Filter Egg Craft

These easy eggs are the perfect inexpensive Easter craft project to make as a family at home or at school for a simple spring art center activity. 

They require only a few simple supplies, are quick to make and can be used to make a variety of fun Easter-themed decorations.

Coffee filter Easter eggs are also a less messy alternative to dyeing Easter eggs.

Preschoolers and kindergartners will practice fine motor skills as they color the coffee filters with water based markers. 

Elementary school age children can practice tracing a pattern and cutting with scissors.

The main thing is to have fun with coloring your egg! You can add a variety of designs and patterns to decorate them.

Children will love spraying these coffee filters with water and watching the colors blend too.

You can also do a little science activity with them: experiment if putting specific colors next to each other creates new colors during the blending stage. 

These may require additional drying time depending on how much water is sprayed on the coffee filter during the blending stage.

It’s important to protect your work surface by placing the coffee filters on top of a craft mat, parchment paper, zippered plastic bag, or even a paper plate before spraying.

Once dry, you can create a cute art project by gluing these coffee filter Easter eggs to construction paper. Use blue construction paper for the sky and green construction paper for the “grass”.

Another option is to create a fun Easter egg garland to hang on the wall, mantel, or across the window by stringing several along a length of twine or string.

Or they can also be placed in a window for a beautiful egg suncatcher!
