Galaxy Easter Egg Painting Craft

When I was a teenager living in New Zealand my family converted the garage into a bedroom. After putting up plaster board and painting the walls white, I helped my parents to sponge paint the walls purple.

The walls had a galaxy paint effect and looked really great. Today I am sharing a fun galaxy easter egg painting tutorial which is based on the same principle of base coating and sponge painting.

It’s such a fun craft and the kids will love it. Enjoy!
