Tissue Paper Easter Egg Craft
Learning to crumple tissue paper without tearing takes a little practice. So, you may want to give your little one a few squares to practice with before they start glueing.
Also, using a paper cutter will make quick work of cutting the paper. This might be important if you’re working with a classroom full of kiddos.
What You’ll Need
What You’ll Do
To make these eggs, you can use scraps of paper you have on hand. Tissue paper, wrapping paper, and construction paper work well. Just cut them into small squares – about 3cmX3cm will do. Or, you can purchase precut tissue paper squares to make things easier.
Take a square and have your preschooler crumple it into a small ball. Keep going until you have LOTS of paper squares. You will need a bunch of them for this project.
The template (below) includes two different egg shapes. Choose your desired size and trace it onto your cardstock. Cut out your egg shape(s) with scissors.
Start glueing the crumpled paper balls onto your egg shape. I prefer to paint one stripe of glue at a time so the glue doesn’t dry before the kids are finished.
Also, I prefer to start at the top of the egg and work my way down so kids aren’t putting their hands in the wet glue as they work. Continue until the whole egg is covered.
Once the egg is covered with crumpled paper balls, let the glue dry for about an hour. Now, it’s ready to be put on display.
