Sun Catcher Easter Eggs
Posted on April 08 2019
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
• Plastic & Metal School Scissors
• White Cardstock Paper
• Colored Tissue Paper (Cut into Small Squares)
• Clear Contact Paper
• Permanent Marker
• Hole Punch
• Twine or String
Draw an Easter Egg Template on white cardstock paper and then cut out the egg.
Using the egg template as a measuring guide, cut a length of contact paper.
Fold the length of contact paper in half and cut again. One piece will be the front of the egg and the other piece will be the back.
Remove the paper from the adhesive side of the contact paper and lay down. Now your kids can start to place the tissue paper squares where ever they want on the contact paper.
Once the contact paper has been covered, and your budding artist is done, place the other piece of contact paper over the top, sticky side down, onto the tissue paper squares. This is most easily done with two sets of hands, but the kids could do this on their own. I would have each child hold up one end while I matched the top corners together as closely as I could. Then I would start to lay the rest of the contact paper down by smoothing my hand down the middle of the paper.
Just remember, you will be cutting the egg shape out of the middle so the edges really don’t matter too much.
Take your Easter Egg Template and a permanent marker and trace the egg template onto the layered contact paper.
Cut out the egg shape with your scissors.
Punch a hole at the top of the egg, using a hole punch. Then use the twine or string to hang the egg. Your kids will have a blast making these!
