Why not embrace some simple creativity for the littlies with two variations of these easy to make stained glass Easter eggs?
It’s an oldie but a goodie in terms of craft ideas that can keep your busy three-year-old interested and your creative five-year-old enthralled.
And yes, it’s got all the elements of fun required – A dash of cutting and crinkling and a sprinkle of sticky mess!
Version 1 -What you need
- Coloured cardboard or EVA foam sheets
- Coloured cellophane
- Glue stick
Version 1 – Instructions
Using the cardboard or EVA foam cut out various sized easter egg shapes. Then cut out circles, stripes, or jagged patterns within the eggs.
Paste strips or sections of cellophane to the back of the Easter egg, ensuring a variety of colours, and mount on your windows.
Version 2 – What you need
Cardboard or EVA foam sheets
Version 2 – Instructions
Cut out egg-shaped frames from your cardboard or foam and then place them on your sticky contact. Cut small circles, squares or triangles from the cellophane.
Decorate the eggs by placing the cellophane on the sticky side of the contact. Finish the project by sealing the eggs with a second sheet of contact, making sure the bubbles are pressed out. Trim off any excess contact, and hang near windows.
