Easter Crafts - Collage Egg

Continuing on with our week of Easter Crafts and activities :).  This is a really fun and simple craft, great for toddlers and preschoolers alike. 

Easter crafts Collage Egg


What you'll need:
Colored Paper (We used light yellow but you can use any color you like)
Scissors
Glue
Paper confetti or magazine cut outs. 

A great educational activity would be allowing your child to go through a magazine and cut out anything that has to do with Easter. Eggs, bunnies, crosses, flowers, chicks etc and use those images to paste to the paper egg.

Instructions:
  • Cut an egg shape out of your paper

  • Let your child apply the glue.  Depending on the thickness of your paper you may need to spread the glue evenly so that the paper doesn't become soggy.

  • Provide a bunch of confetti and let your child apply it sporadically.  I had to stop Emma at some point, she was really getting into it. :o) (Alternatively you can use Easter images cut from the magazine)
