I found this box of tissue paper squares from Lakeshore Learning. Since we do so many crafts with Tissue Paper, I decided it was worth it.


This Easter Egg Craft was super easy! I just drew a large egg shape onto construction paper, then had them crumple and glue on decorations. My 2nd grader used a pencil tip, crumpled the paper around the pencil and dipped it in glue. The boy wasn’t too into frilly tissue eggs, so he just wrote out his card.

This was too time consuming for my preschooler, she just crumpled the pieces with her fingers and dipped them in glue. It turned out to be a great fine-motor-skill building craft as she had to separate the little sheets of tissue, then crumple, then glue.


Here are our final Eggs! I may cut them out, and hang them in the window!


Happy Easter!


  1. HA! I love that your son skipped the frills and wrote out his card while your daughters' are bursts of pinks and other pretty colors. Daddy must be so proud!! LOL!! BTW: Oriental Trading also offers cut squares like this.
