Craft: Decorative Easter Eggs

We have recently moved and have a number of boxes! Needless to say we have built a number of forts, stores and houses. This week we have put some of the packaging materials to good use and made decorative Easter eggs.

It took a bit of research to name the types of board/packaging materials we used but I can confirm we used honeycomb board and corrugated cardboard sheets!

Materials we used:

  • Honeycomb board
  • Corrugated cardboard sheets
  • Magazines
  • Sticky tape
  • Scissors
  • Pen

After drawing an egg shape on the honeycomb board I cut it out and peeled the sheet of cardboard off one side.

The fun followed as to the boys tore pages out of the magazines, crumpled them up and placed them in the holes on the board.

After they were finished I used some of the corrugated cardboard sheets to make a border around the eggs, which was stuck on using sticky tape.

Owen and Carson thoroughly enjoyed this craft and were happy with their decorative eggs. It was easy for them to do and they had fun ripping the paper and crumpling it.

There was little mess to clean up afterwards, in fact it all went in the recycling!

Happy page turning and crafting x
