Easter is just around the corner and honestly it’s not really a holiday I do much decorating for except, of course, for dying Easter eggs with a homemade mixture of vinegar and food coloring, but usually we do that right around Easter Sunday.
Well, this weekend my girls were jonesing for some kind of a craft and I thought lets decorate eggs without eggs because there are only so many hard boiled eggs I can handle so I pulled out the construction paper and some of our art supplies and we created our own easy Easter craft.
My girls are 6 and 4-years-old and I have to say that at this point in their lives they may have enjoyed decorating these construction paper Easter eggs more than they do decorating actual eggs.
- Construction Paper
- Glue (Stick/Elmer’s White Glue)
- Decorations of your choice (things like: stickers, beads, markers, glitter glue, whatever you like)
- Cut as many sheets of construction paper as you would like into the shape of eggs. I went for large eggs, of course you could do smaller eggs.
- If your kids are doing this on a surface you don’t want to get damaged, put something down to protect it. I like to use parchment paper because it’s something we always have available in the kitchen.
- Let the kids go at it and decorate the eggs however they like.
- Let the glue on the eggs dry completely. You can either leave the eggs as is or glue the finished eggs onto a full sheet of construction paper.
- That’s it!
