The children were given an oval shaped piece of coloured card. Older learners can do their own cutting to cut them out.
I set out a variety of collage materials including pieces of shiny paper, glitter, pom poms, coloured sucker sticks, wooden beads, coloured matchsticks and coloured pipe cleaners. Any collage material will be effective.
The children collaged their eggs.
A different collage idea – using craft double-sided tape.
Once several pieces were secured, the children pulled off the top paper to expose the sticky tape underneath. (Great for fine motor) They sprinkled shiny paper confetti pieces onto the sticky tape and created shiny eggs. Some children chose to stick small coloured foam shapes to their eggs too (blue flower). These foam shapes also come in bunny shapes and Easter egg shapes.
TIP: I tried this with the 2- 31/2 year olds. They did manage, but you will need to keep the group small. I think it would be a really good activity for the older age group. I also kept the tape safely in my hands, otherwise little fingers just love to pull off lots of long pieces which get muddled up and stuck to everything except the paper!
