I'm sure you've been inspired by all the great Easter egg decorating ideas out there. With Easter just about a week away, the egg hunt is on! Here's a simple paper craft on wooden eggs I recently made with my 5 year old daughter. I like the idea of using wooden eggs since they're durable and can be played with long past Easter. The pretty pattern papers look so festive on the eggs and this is an enjoyable and simple craft you can make along with the kids!
Paper Decorated Wooden Easter Eggs - Materials:
- Wooden Eggs (I used these which came in a cute carton)
1. Punch out paper using your one inch circle punch. My daughter had a fun time doing this. If you don't have a punch, you can have kids cut out pieces of paper or with younger ones, have them tear up pieces.
2. Working one egg at a time, use a foam brush to apply a coating of Mod Podge. Apply pieces of paper, layering with Mod Podge on top. At this point, I found it best to use my fingers, dipping them a bit into the Mod Podge and applying pressure on each piece of paper. My daughter had a lot of fun doing this part since it was so tactile.
3. Allow the paper to dry on each egg. Spray with Satin Finish Spray if using.
Here are the eggs drying. This took about 30 minutes.
The texture of the paper is pretty cool once the Mod Podge is dry and since these are wooden eggs, they feel durable and long-lasting for play.
You can also place them in a pretty container and display them at your Easter table for a festive look.
My daughter really enjoyed this easy craft project and loves playing with the eggs along with her pretend kitchen toys. Which is what's so great about these eggs - they can be played with long past Easter!
