We got out our Easter decorations a couple weeks ago and Ryann has been obsessed with Peter Rabbit Easter Egg Hunt, a book she got last year. It’s a pop-up book with the cutest scenes and some interactive elements that really keep her attention.
After many times through the book she decided we MUST have a decoration like the one hanging in the house in this picture.
So I said let’s do it! I rummaged through my scrapbooking supplies and pulled out papers, a hole punch and yarn. I don’t scrapbook, we just use the papers and stickers for impromptu craft projects like this one. I find there are all sorts of things you can use those cute patterns and bows for and if you get everything on clearance it’s really a bargain compared to most craft supplies.
I made a template egg out of some heavy paper. (Please excuse the shoddy camera work, I was using my phone as I didn’t plan this project in advance at all!)
Then we traced and cut out eggs on many different patterned papers. There was really no theme, just whatever looked cute.
I love how focused she looks tracing and cutting the paper in these pictures. She is actually quite good at both and I was surprised how much all her eggs looked like eggs.
