I saw this adorable Easter Egg wreath that Jennifer made with her kids a little while ago. And I thought it was soooo cute. But I thought Hailey might be a little young to try it. Then I saw Andrea do it on her blog too- and her son is only a little older than Hailey, so I decided to go ahead and try it.
It was very simple and probably appropriate for any age child.
All you need is paper plate or a large piece of card stock, construction paper, scissors, and glue.
Cut out the center of the paper plate or the card stock (which is what I used because I was out of paper plates). Cut egg shapes out of different colored construction paper. Then let the kids decorate the eggs with crayons, markers and stickers.
Of course I had to cut the “eggs” out (I think age 3 is probably the right time to start allowing children to try out scissors on their own). But, Hailey did the coloring and even the gluing herself. While we were working on this acitivity I made sure to talk about the oval shape of the eggs as well as the circle shape of the wreath. I also made note of the colors of the eggs and the colors of the crayons Hailey was using. She LOVED it and cried when we were all done. So, here are some pictures of the fun.
Hailey was so proud when she saw her Easter Egg wreath hanging up.
