This is Sharon from Lemon Squeezy, and today’s download is more of an Easter craft with a side of download. This is a really simple activity that both my 4 year old and my 10 year old love to do.
Here is what you’ll need: Construction paper, tissue paper cut into squares, and clear contact paper (I found mine at Walmart in the kitchen section).
After your child chooses the color of construction paper they’d like to use, cut out an egg shape as large as you can on the page. Once you cut that, poke a hole in the center of the egg and cut out the inside. Also cut two construcion-paper-sized pieces of the contact paper.
Then peel off one of the pieces of contact paper and place it on the counter, sticky side up.
Next place the egg shape into the middle of the contact paper and your child can then place tissue paper squares into the middle of the egg.
Generally you want to fill up the entire area in the egg. When the tissue paper over laps is creates a cool layered affect.
And here is a finished egg taped up in the window! It looks great in real life.
And this is where the free printable comes in. I thought I’d teach my kids what the eggs symbolized in Easter. I researched it a little and put together this egg with its meaning in the middle of it.
