Supplies for Making Easter Egg Crafts
Here are a few supplies you’ll find useful for most of these crafts:
- Cardstock or construction paper
- Paint (washable for little ones)
- Tissue paper
- Kid-safe scissors
Fun Easter Egg Crafts for Preschoolers
Let’s get started with a few simple crafty projects that are perfect for preschoolers at home or school.
1. Salt Dough Easter Eggs
Do you have an Easter tree tradition in your family? If so, these salt dough Easter eggs will look adorable hanging from the tree’s branches. They’re cute and really inexpensive to make using a basic salt dough recipe, an Easter egg cookie cutter, paint, glitter, and twine.
2. Painted Pasta Egg Art
Remember making macaroni crafts when you were a kid? Now your own children can get in on the fun! These painted pasta eggs are colorful and whimsical; they’re also very forgiving. No matter how you decorate the pasta or the eggs themselves, they’ll look fantastic.
3. Easter Egg Lacing Craft
Practice fine motor skills with a colorful lacing craft with an Easter theme. It’s a wonderful quiet-time activity and a terrific way to use up scrap pieces of yarn.
4. Leaf Easter Eggs
Make time for some nature exploration to find the perfect leaves to make your painted leaf Easter eggs. You may find paint pens and glitter pens easier to work with than paintbrushes, but there’s no wrong way to go about this nature art project.

5. Yarn-Wrapped Eggs
Grab an empty cardboard box, cut out an egg shape, and provide some yarn for your little one to make yarn-wrapped Easter eggs. The more colorful the yarn, the better!
6. Potato Stamp Eggs
Create a colorful Easter scene in a flash using potato stamps carved into creative patterns and painted with bright colors. Adults should do the potato carving, but kids as young as toddlers can enjoy the painting and stamping.
7. Felt Easter Eggs
Felt crafts are loads of fun because instead of gluing the pieces together, you can opt just to assemble them, take them apart, and reassemble them whenever you’d like.
You can certainly use glue if you prefer. Prep a tray of ribbons, buttons, sequins, and felt eggs for your toddler or preschooler to decorate.
8. Crystal Easter Eggs
Fit in a science lesson while crafting. Making crystal Easter eggs is a really interesting process involving pipe cleaners and Borax crystals.
Kids are delighted when they check on their eggs to see how many crystals have formed. If you hang the finished product near a window, you can watch the light sparkle off the crystals.
9. Easter Egg Suncatchers
Unlike your usual suncatcher craft, these Easter egg suncatchers are made with painted fabric centers and construction paper frames. Of course, you can make them with tissue paper in the center if you’d like, but painting the fabric lets kids explore a different medium.
10. Easter Egg Maracas
Have so many plastic eggs that you don’t know what to do with them? Use a few to make Easter egg maracas for the whole family. You can learn about these fun musical instruments and spend a few minutes rocking out to one of your favorite tunes while shaking them. Dance party time!
11. Easter Egg Scrape Painting
Try a new paint technique. Scrape painting always yields interesting and unique results. To scrape paint, you put several blobs of paint on a piece of paper and use a flat edge to scrape the paint across the page.
Cut those scraped paintings into egg shapes and back them with coordinating cardstock. Easy peasy.
Easter Egg Paper Crafts
12. He Is Risen Easter Egg Craft
If you’re looking for an Easter craft for your Sunday School class or to teach your own children about the reason behind the holiday, look no further. This project comes with a template that kids can cut and assemble while learning about the death and resurrection of Jesus.
13. Mosaic Paper Easter Egg
Let kids practice their scissor skills by cutting construction paper to make these marvelous mosaic eggs. If your kiddo is too young for cutting, tearing paper is also excellent fine motor practice for little fingers.
14. Easter Egg Photo Craft
Turn photos into cute Easter egg cards for friends and family. This is an excellent classroom craft to send home with kids to surprise their parents, but you can also make them at home (grandparents would love one)! Adding the candy around the border is optional; you could use foam stickers or leave the border plain instead.
15. Woven Paper Easter Egg
Practice paper weaving with a festive and colorful craft that’ll look beautiful in your windows this spring. Paper weaving helps kids develop hand-eye coordination while working on concentration and focus.
16. Crumpled Paper Egg Craft
Scrunching up paper is a neat way for kids to build hand muscles. Try it with this tissue paper egg craft that’s made with cardstock and crumpled pieces of tissue paper. Although you can use any kind of crumpled paper, tissue paper will be easiest for little hands to squeeze.
17. Pop Up Easter Egg Card
Your preschooler will be so proud to present this Easter egg card to someone special. Use the craft sticks glued to the back to move the pieces to reveal the child’s smiling picture inside. Adorable!
18. Quilled Paper Easter Egg
Older kids enjoy crafts, too, and this paper-quilling Easter egg craft is enough of a challenge for your older kids and tweens. It’s a beautiful art form, and this craft can be a great jumping-off point for learning paper quilling techniques.
19. Hatching Chick Easter Egg Craft
You can’t get any cuter than a hatching chick in an Easter egg. Your kids will love the fact that the top of the egg moves up and down using a brass fastener.
20. Baby Yoda Easter Egg
Do you have a Baby Yoda fan on your hands? Make this completely adorable craft together! The printable template makes it really easy. You could also turn this into an Easter card for someone who’s a fan of the Mandalorian series.
21. Easter Egg Garland
Planning an Easter party? Make a colorful Easter egg garland to decorate the food table, a window, or a doorway. It’s as simple as making an egg template, coloring or painting them, and hanging them on twine to make the garland.
I love the idea of using miniature clothespins to hang them rather than punching holes at the top. Genius!
22. Egg in the Grass Craft
Hiding eggs is one of the most exciting events of the Easter season. Capture some of that excitement with a crafty representation of an Easter egg in the grass.
Paint paper eggs and create a 3D patch of grass to let it rest in. These will look great on a shelf or table.
23. Sponge Painted Easter Eggs
There are so many ways to decorate a paper egg template. This one involves using pieces of sponge and a clothespin to stamp out patterns and colors onto the egg. If you don’t have sponges, use cotton balls or pom-poms.
