Spring you guys!! Spring is just around the corner. The air is fresh, the weather is turning mild, the snow is MELTING! It feels so spring-like we decided to start some Easter egg crafts yesterday.
Sensory play is always a fun addition to a crafting project – and this sensory addition is fairly mess-free too. Even better, it is a great craft for ALL ages. Young toddlers all the way through to adults can enjoy this Easter egg craft together.
For this Easter egg craft we used only two things: tissue paper and sticky contact paper. We get both of these things, along with almost all our crafting and quiet time supplies, at the Dollar Store.
To begin, I cut out some Easter egg shapes from the contact paper. Be sure to leave the back on the contact paper to make cutting nice and simple.
While I was cutting out the Easter egg shapes, I had the kids’ tear up the tissue paper into squares. This activity is great for strengthening little hands. For very small children it is easier if the tissue paper is torn into long strips first. You can also simply cut the tissue paper into squares.
Next, I peeled the back off of the contact paper and placed it sticky side up. I secured it with a little bit of tape so it would stay in place.
Then, we stuck the tissue paper to the contact paper Easter egg. My older kiddos wrapped the tissue paper squares around the eraser end of a pencil and stuck them on the egg. Younger children can just scrunch the tissue paper into balls and stick them on.
These make great suncatchers and beautiful decorations in the window! A great start to our Easter crafting.
I hear the weather is going to be 14 degrees here on Thursday. Break out the shorts and tees! These Canadians are officially out of hibernation!
Happy Easter crafting friends,
