Easter Egg Wreath Craft

This week we’ve got started on making some simple decorations for Easter with this fun Easter egg wreath craft. My son and I sat down and made it together but as it requires a few Easter eggs to be decorated this could be a nice Easter activity for playdates, playgroups or Sunday Schools too. I drew mine freehand but I’ve included a free downloadable template for anyone who prefers!

How to make your Easter Egg Wreath:

I cut all of my eggs out freehand from my coloured paper but if you’d like to make sure your eggs look perfect you can print my Easter egg template straight onto some paper.

Once all my Easter eggs were cut out I invited my son to join in and we tore up the tissue paper and stuck it onto the eggs to decorate. As an aside, this totally wasn’t my original plan, nope. I had a totally different idea for decorating these my my four year old was totally not down with that. Or the ten (yes, really) ideas I suggested after that. The tissue paper was his idea and you know what? I actually think it looks a lot cuter than my original suggestion, so there you go, outsmarted by a four year old again! Tissue paper is actually a great crafting material for preschoolers, tearing and crunching it make this into a real sensory art for them too. You could change it and use scissors to encourage scissor skills or keep to tearing and sticking, either way is lots of fun!

Once all the eggs are dry you need to make a wreath, I did this by drawing around a dinner plate on a bit of card to make the outside line and drawing around a saucer for the inner one and then cutting the shape out. Glue your Easter eggs onto your wreath and you’re done!
