Striped Easter Egg Craft for Toddlers to Make
This toddler Easter craft is really simple to do. With a bit of preparation (cutting out all the pieces), your toddler can do most of this on their own. For this activity, I cut the strips all to one long size, and trim them later – much easier than trying to get your toddler to place them in the right spot! You can always stick these onto some cardboard to make cute Easter cards. If your child is older, have them cut out their own paper strips – it’s great fine motor practice!
This Easter craft is the 2nd craft in our 7 day Easter Craft Challenge (you can sign up HERE if you haven’t already). If you make today’s craft make sure you share a photo in our Facebook group or over on Instagram – use #myboredtoddler and tag @myboredtoddler . I’ll share some of my favorites!
What do you need to make a striped Easter Egg
- White paper or cardboard – 1 sheet
- Colored paper or cardboard
- Scissors (adult ones if you are doing the cutting. If you want your toddler to have a go try some of these safety scissors)
- Glue stick
What to do:
1. Cut out an oval egg shape from the colored card or paper.
Cut out strips of colored paper. You can make these any size – ours were about 2cm wide
Place glue over the entire egg shape (this is much easier than having them put it on each piece). Older toddlers can do this part themselves.
Stick the strips of paper on the egg. If you do the first one, they should be able to do the rest themselves. Cut out around the egg to get rid of all of the excess paper. Glue onto another sheet of colored paper (optional step)
.Cut out around the egg leaving a 1-2cm border.
