This is a fun and simple craft! My kids loved the sticky texture of the eggs, and each made several of these Easter Egg crafts.
Making Sticky Easter Eggs
- Cardstock or construction paper in Easter colors
- Contact Paper
- Double sided tape
- Anything else you want to decorate the eggs!
Cut out large eggs from the paper. Then add double sided tape around the edges and the center of the egg. Cut out a piece of contact paper using the paper egg as a model, and place the contact paper egg matte side down on top of the tape. Then peel the backing off of the contact paper, and you’ll have a sticky egg!
For the decorations, you can really use anything that will stick to the paper. I wanted to keep this simple, so we cut circles from different colored paper using a hole punch, and cut pieces of ribbon. Other things we use with sticky paper are buttons, googly eyes, different textures of paper or foil, or my toddler always loves using pompoms!
My kids placed the dots and the ribbons on the eggs. My 6 year old cut the ribbon into even smaller pieces. Then we hung up the eggs for Easter decorations!
