Easter Egg Sun Catcher
This is a fun craft project you and your kids can do together. For making a simple egg for your kids to help you with, trace an oval and help them cut it out. For a more detailed look, you can make designs and use an Xacto knife to carefully cut out and then decorate with assorted colors of tissue paper.
Total Time: 30-45 minutes + drying time
- thin cardboard paper (sturdy for outline of your sun catcher)
- tissue paper
- Xacto knife
- pen or pencil
- hot glue gun
- glue stick
- paint, optional
- paint brush
- Trace or free hand an oval shape on a sturdy piece of paper or thin cardboard.
- I wanted to make designs on my egg, so I drew curved lines.
- Cut your oval egg out and using an Xacto knife carefully cut out the curved lines. Repeat steps 1 & 2 until you have as many eggs you want.
- Optional: You can leave your eggs as is or paint. The paint used - Deco Art acrylic paint in the color Sea Breeze and Peacock Teal. With one egg I used the sponge technique of dabbing two colors together and I liked the outcome! Allow to dry.
- While your paint is drying. You can cut strips of tissue paper (used assorted colors) into triangles, squares, any shapes you like.
- The fun part is using a glue stick and gluing the assorted tissue paper shapes down. Once you finish your art work, go over with scissors and trim down the remainder.
- Use hot glue to secure a piece of ribbon for hanging. I put my two decorated eggs glued together, but you can leave it separate if you'd like too. They are ready to tape or hang.
