How to create paper strip eggs
Here are the step by step instructions to create a paper Easter egg. Then you can see them all in action in the video!
Print out an egg template and cut out the egg from the center. We will be using the outside of the egg so start by cutting the middle of the egg and move out to the edge. Your child might need help with this depending on their age.
Next, start cutting strips!
These can be all different thicknesses. Use as many colors of construction paper as you like. This is a great way to use up scrap pieces of paper you might have lying around. Once you have a good pile of strips start attaching them with glue on the second piece of paper.

Cover as much of the surface as possible.
Add glue to the ink side of your egg cut out.
Then place it on top of your strips and press down. Trim the edges if needed and you’re done!
If your little one is new to gluing remind them to press down their strips and egg well to make sure they get a good bond. Watch the whole thing created in our video!
