Easter is just around the corner, get in the spirit with this Stained Glass Easter Egg craft. This craft is fun for toddlers on up. Plus, you won’t have dozens of eggs to eat when you are done.
- Egg pattern (download the PDF pattern)
- White or ivory cardstock, 8.5 x 11
- Tissue paper in multiple colors (pinks, blues, yellows and greens work best)
- Glue stick
- Optional: glitter
- Optional: laminating paper
- Hole puncher
Cut the tissue paper into multiple shapes. Rectangle, squares, triangles, circles, ovals, etc. They don’t have to be perfect. Make both large and small shapes.
Print out the egg pattern on the white or ivory cardstock paper. Have your child glue the pieces of tissue paper onto the egg with the glue stick. They can glue as many or as few as they want. Add glitter for an extra spark. Once the egg is decorated, cut it out. Cover the egg in laminating paper to keep it protected for years of decorating fun.
At the top of the egg, punch a hole. Thread the ribbon through and tie a knot to secure. These will look great hanging in windows, on the wall or even on an Easter egg tree. Enjoy!
