For one of our Halloween crafts, we made some positive and negative pictures.  They turned out so nicely, we made some positive and negative Easter pictures.  Depending on your child’s age and development, these pictures can either be super simple or really intricate.  I must admit I bought myself a new scalpel for this.  The one I usually use was my Dad’s and not the easiest to use when doing elaborate patterns.

Make sure you follow my Easter board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

To make your own positive and negative Easter pictures you will need:

  • Coloured paper
  • Scissors
  • Art scalpel (optional)
  • Glue
  • Pencil

Fold and cut one piece of coloured paper in half.

Draw half of your picture on the coloured paper you cut in half.  For younger children, it is easier if the picture starts at the edge of the paper.  That way it makes the next step much easier.

Cut out the design.  Remember you don’t want to cut through the paper to get to the designs in the middle.  Nor do you want to pierce the paper with scissors.  This is where an art scalpel comes in.

Flip and glue it onto the opposite piece of paper. It should create the mirror image.
