Plastic Egg Paint Tray

OK, Easter is over, so why are there still so many plastic eggs laying around my house?!? I HAD to figure out a way to re-purpose them, here is one fun way!



Plastic Eggs

Piece of cardboard

Hot glue gun

Decorative paper (optional)



Step 1: Cut your piece of cardboard into desired shape (rectangle or circle works well)

Step 2: Cover your cardboard with decorative paper (if desired) with hot glue and cover with contact paper (wipes off easily!)

Step 3: Using the glue gun, glue the bottom piece of each egg to the cardboard (there is usually a small hole in each egg, just make sure to cover it with the glue so paint doesn’t leak)

Step 4: Fill with paint and cover with the top of the egg!

My kids thought this was so funny, they loved painting with it!


  1. That sounds like it would be fun. I would love to see how the painting turned out. Was it a big mess or easily contained chaos?

  3. I was just about to pack up all the plastic eggs with our Easter decorations. I will have to pull out a few to make this. Thanks for sharing!
