Cute Easter Egg Paper Craft Decoration for Kids to Make and Decorate

This Easter Egg Paper Craft is such a fun and easy Easter activity for the kids!

They'll love being able to be creative and make some fun Easter decor at the same time as well.

If you're ready to have the kids sit down and do a fun activity for Easter, this simple paper craft is the best!

Easter Egg Paper Craft

The fun part about this simple Easter craft is that kids of all ages can join in on the fun.

As long as they're willing to learn a few cutting skills and can pick out some of their favourite colours, that's all that's really required of them to do this activity. 

The other really fun thing that I like about this egg craft is that it doesn't have to be perfectly done either.

Once the kids choose the coloured paper to add to their egg, they can easily cut off the scraps from the edges of the egg if they happen to be hanging off. 

Ways to Showcase this Easter Egg Paper Craft

Once the kids are done making this fun craft, you have to show it off!

It's a beautiful egg decoration for Easter that deserves to be in the spotlight!

Just hang it up and have the kids be so proud of the work that they did. 

They'll love this simple Easter activity so much that they'll want to do it over and over again.

And to be perfectly honest, that's fine!

This is a great way for them to change up the colours and the designs of their eggs every single time. 

It's also a simple activity for them to work on their fine motor skills as well.

They'll be so interested in creating that they won't even realize that they're learning and working on improving their cutting skills, too! 

How to Make Easter Egg Paper Craft


Here are all the materials you'll need:


1. Select a craft paper for the egg shape and select different brightly coloured craft papers for the shapes to decorate the egg.

2. Use the printable template to trace and cut out the egg and the shape patterns.

3. The cut out shapes to decorate the eggs will be wider than the egg, but don’t worry about that as we can trim the excess later.

4. Start to arrange then glue the colourful paper shapes onto the egg shape. Mix and match different shapes, for example I added a zigzag pattern between 2 straight lines.

5. Continue to add the paper cutouts until the whole egg shape is filled.

6. When you have finsihed decorating the egg shape, use scissors to trim the extra sides of the attached decorative papers and align them with the egg base layout.

(You may need to do this for younger kids.)

7. Try out different coloured papers for the egg shape and use more different shape cutouts to decorate other paper eggs. 

8. You can then glue the eggs to a contrasting background to make a card. We love these ready folded cards with envelopes.

Or you could tack them up as decorations or string them together to make an Easter garland.
