Easter Egg Craft #1 Spiral Egg Mobile

This Easter egg craft is a cute “twist” on a traditional egg mobile craft.

Supplies

  • Dinner Sized Paper Plate
  • Crayons or Markers
  • Colored Construction Paper
  • Egg Shaped Template
  • Thread or String
  • Hole Punch
  • Scissors
  • Easter Clip Art (optional)

How to Make a Spiral Easter Egg Mobile

Step 1: Decorate both sides of the paper plate using crayons or markers. Use multiple colors to get a colorful display.

Step 2: Cut off the rim of the plate. Then continue cutting around the edge of the plate to create a spiral. Leave enough room at the end to punch a hole for hanging.

Step 3: Cut out several different eggs (in different sizes) with the colored construction paper.

Step 4: Decorate the front and back of each egg in your own design.

Tip: You can cut some of the eggs to look like a broken egg. Then print out some fun Easter clip art and glue these to the egg to look like the Easter animals are sitting in the broken egg.

Step 5: Punch several holes around the spiral paper plate. Then punch a hole in each egg and place thread through the holes and tie them off. You can hang some of the eggs sideways to give it a fun look.

Tip: It is easiest to see how long the thread needs to be if you hang your paper plate from a coat hanger. This way you can see each egg dangling to help determine how long the thread needs to be.

Hang this mobile in your house or the classroom for some really cute Easter decorations. If doing this as a classroom project, you can have each child write their name on the back of the Easter egg.

Easter Egg Crafts #2 Easter Egg “Treat” Tree

This kids craft idea is “yummy” as well as a great Easter decoration.

Supplies

  • 8 to 10 Green or Brown Pipe Cleaners
  • 3 Small Egg Shaped Styrofoam
  • Paints
  • Wrapped Easter Candy (Egg shaped)
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue

How to Make an Easter Egg Treat Tree

Step 1: Cut your styrofoam eggs in half lengthwise. Decorate 5 halves with paint and allow them to dry.

Tip: If using multiple colors on the eggs, allow the first color to dry completely before adding the next color. Use lighter colors as the base and the darker colors for the design. Or only paint the portion of the egg with the colors you want.

Step 2: Wrap the pipe cleaners together half way up to form the trunk of the tree.

Step 3: For the branches of the tree, wrap 2 pipe cleaners together (from the top half of the grouped pipe cleaners). Bend and shape into a branch.

Tip: 2 pipe cleaners give the branches more strength to hold your candy. If you are using larger or heavier candy, add more pipe cleaners and then use 3 pipe cleaners for each branch.

Step 4: Using Easter colored ribbon, cut several pieces for hanging the candied eggs. Using a hot glue gun, create a loop at the top of each piece of ribbon.

Step 5: At the end of the ribbon, hot glue your covered Easter egg candies. Be careful where you place the hot glue as you don’t want this to get inside the wrapper.

Step 6: Take your styrofoam egg halves and form a circle (with 4 halves) and one in the middle. This will be your base for the tree. Hot glue the eggs together.

Step 7: Stick the trunk of the tree (grouped pipe cleaners) into the middle egg. Now hang your candied eggs on the tree branches.

Tip: This step becomes a balancing act. When hanging the candy hold the base and then hang the candies in a way to even out the weight.

Some variations for this egg craft is to use a large styrofoam egg for the base instead of the smaller ones. You can also use a terracotta pot and use flower foam. Another fun and different way for this craft is to use an actual tree branch. Then hange some plastic eggs filled with candy.

Easter Egg Craft #3 Silhouette Egg Sun Catcher

This Easter egg craft idea will look great hanging in your window. Use different colors to really catch the sun.


Silhouette Egg Sun Catcher

Supplies

  • Black Craft Foam
  • Easter Egg Shape Template
  • Colored Tissue Paper
  • Double Stick Tape
  • Scissors

How to Make a Silhouette Sun Catcher

Step 1: Trace several egg shapes onto your craft foam. Draw a design on the egg.

Tip: These designs need to go from edge to edge of the egg to make the silhouette effect work.

Step 2: Cut out the egg shapes making sure to not cut through the section of the egg where your design meets the edge.

Step 3: Place double stick tape around the egg design on the back. Cut out a piece of tissue paper and place this on the back of the craft foam over the double stick tape.

Step 4: Tear or cut away excess tissue paper.

Step 5: Repeat for all your egg shapes.

Tip: You can add multiple colors to your eggs. Just stick on each color in the section of the egg.

Step 6: Stick on some ribbon or suction cup attachment on the back and hang on your window.

These colorful eggs will show off their colors when the sun shines through.

  • Glue
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Tape
