Spring has got to be the absolute best time of the year! Don’t you agree? Today we are making the final craft in the popsicle stick Easter craft series…and it is also the simplest! Learn how to make this abstract Easter egg art and then continue with the rest of the collection:
All of these crafts, along with every other one on this site, are made from the same MASTER LIST of craft supplies. And this is so that creating with your family is so much easier! Find out what to put in your bag so that you can craft along the next time those spring showers hit, and you find yourself looking for a fun activity!
SUPPLIES FROM THE BAG
- 3 Large popsicle sticks (per egg)
- White construction paper
- Elmer’s glue
- White paint
- Medium pompom
- Glue stick
- Variety of pastel construction paper
- Hole punch (optional)
Step 1: Make the frame
- Glue 3 large popsicle sticks together into a triangle shape
- Allow the Elmer’s to dry completely before moving on
- *You may want to make the frames the night before and allow them to dry. Make several so that you are ready to make lots of crafts!
Step 2: Paint
- Place the frame on the newspaper and squeeze out a little white paint onto the paper too
- Pinch the pompom with the clothespin to form a “paint brush”
- Last, paint the frame white and let it dry
Step 3: Cut and glue
- First, place the triangle on the white construction paper
- Then, trace around the triangle with your pencil
- Inside that triangle, draw a second triangle about 1/8″ inside the border
- Last, cut out the smaller triangle and glue it onto the back of the white triangle frame
- *For little ones who are just learning to cut simple shapes, trace over the triangle to be cut with a sharpie marker so that it is easier to cut
Not sure if your kiddo should be using scissors yet? So glad you asked…
Step 4: Decorate the egg
- From the pastel construction paper, cut out shapes that you want to add to your Easter egg. You can even use the hole punch to make dots like the one pictured below.
- *If you have a little one who has not yet learned cutting skills, let them color the egg with crayons or markers. You can even present them with the egg completed up to this point and just have your kiddo do the decorating.
There are tons of ways that you can display these little Easter creations.
- Try putting them together in a basket (see the picture).
- Get some clothespins and twin/ribbon and make a banner out of your eggs. Put it in a special place in your home for all to see!
- Glue magnets to the back of each egg and put them on your refrigerator.
- Frame them as a collection or individually to make them extra special little works of art.
