Colored Eggshell Collage

Colored Eggshell Collage

Don’t throw away those eggshells after peeling your colored Easter eggs. Here’s a cute springtime activity that is very appealing to most children. It works to stimulate imaginations and foster creativity. We did our collages on butterflies and flowers, but any shape will do. We also chose to keep things simple, but there is no limit to the materials which can be added to these cute collages.

MATERIALS USED:

– Construction paper
– Our free butterfly template
– Our free flower template
– Colored eggshells
– A variety of collage materials (if desired)
– Scissors
– Glue

Easter Egg Lacing Cards

These free Easter egg lacing cards are an excellent way for preschoolers to build fine motor skills and strengthen eye-hand coordination. When working with beginner lacers, it’s important to emphasize the in and out motion. I have my children say this along with me:

“Hello neighbor, goodbye neighbor, hello neighbor, goodbye neighbor..”

As the children work to weave, this chant helps to remind them that they should be sewing into the next hole, and not the one on the other side of the card. As young learners become more experienced, they will begin to use their helper hands to turn and manipulate the cards as they lace.

I recommend printing these on cardstock. Laminate, if possible, for heavy use. Happy lacing!
