I grew up in the 90s and early 2000s, and if you did too, then you know that Lisa Frank was THE BEST THING EVER!

The folders, the crafts, those velvety poster things she made.. and of course, the fun of scratching off her black sheets to reveal pretty tie dye colors under neath!

Instructions

  1. Color all the Easter Eggs and bunny bold colors. Make sure to color hard (no shading in!) so that when you scratch off the black, the small amount of color doesn't come off too! easter egg hunt game for kids free printable scratch and reveal
  2. Now color all of it black, leaving just the directions on top! egg scratch and reveal easter game for kids
  3. Ask your child to help find the eggs by using a nickle to remove the black crayon! You can mark off each one you find at the top of the worksheet if you like! fun easter egg hunt game for kids scratch and reveal

Notes

  • Color hard so that there is plenty of remaining color should some of it come up with the black being scratched off
  • DO NOT use a popsicle stick, quarter, or anything else soft/ridged. It will just smudge the black around and make it look icky! (I learned this the hard way!)
