Easter Egg Tree Paper Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

I think this simple little craft turned out very cute!  Thanks to Sally, one of the viewers, for requesting it.

In Germany and Austria, it's customary to celebrate Easter by hanging hollow eggs from the branches of trees -- hollowing out real eggs is a bit much for the preschool set, but this craft is a great substitute!

The craft is simple enough for young kids to contribute (especially if you make it for the bulletin board) but still fun for even mom to make!

There are a number of variations on this craft depending on which templates you print and how messy you want to get.  You can either:

  1. Craft
    Handprint 
    Trunk option

    Decorate a "homemade" trunk (to make the trunk, trace your child's arm from the elbow up, including the fingers)
     
  2. Print the Trunk and the Leaves and paste them together.
     
  3. make an extra-large bulletin board sized project with each child contributing one egg for the class tree.  This is likely the best option for younger kids as they'll have an easier time decorating/designing their egg.
