Easter egg crafts are super fun and colorful decorations to add to your spring holiday decor. This is the ultimate list of Easter egg crafts for preschoolers.
20 Easter Egg Crafts for Preschoolers
Spring has the best crafts, doesn’t it? What with all the pastel colors, there’s also something about spring that seems to encourage us to start new projects and crafts, right?
Easter is the same for me.
I see the Easter eggs in the stores and think of the cute garlands everyone is making out of them. Or wreaths.
And I see the baby animal icons in the Easter section, and again, I think of all the cute crafts that highlight these soft, furry, and little animals.
Well, it seems like Easter would be amiss if you didn’t include at least one (or maybe two or twenty) Easter Egg crafts in your Easter preschool lesson plans.
You see, Easter eggs are something most preschoolers can identify with. They love those little plastic eggs hiding candy treasures. So why not do a paper Easter egg craft so your preschoolers can enjoy a little art fun, too?
For your convenience, I’ve divided the crafts into two parts: toddler and preschool.
This isn’t to say that one cannot do the other, but I wanted to keep the more basic crafts separate so that those looking for something specific to toddlers can easily find them. But honestly, your preschoolers will love them too.
Easter Egg Crafts for Toddlers
The following Easter egg crafts are very suitable for toddlers. They are just the right mix of process art and craft, leaving much of the control in the toddler’s hands. That said, my preschoolers have enjoyed many of these Easter art activities, too.
