Step 2: Staple and cut out the Paper Eggs & Decorations

Once you have the Easter Basket template printed out, staple it to construction paper and cut out multiple shapes at a time.

Staple the template to multiple sheets of paper so it’s easy to cut out

You can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 6-10 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.

Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

TIP: For this craft, instead of cutting the circles out by hand, I used craft hole punchers and I HIGHLY recommend them!

You will need a large circle and a smaller one. But other shapes are fun as well!

You can get craft hole punchers at any craft store or possibly big name stores that sell craft items. Again, make sure you’re punching holes in more than one sheet at a time! if you don’t have a hole punch, just cut out the circles by hand.

Step 3: How to Assemble

The kids will have so much fun making these fun Easter Eggs!

  1. choose your paper egg
  2. glue on the decorations
  3. optional: add glitter, decorate with markers, add stickers
  4. don’t forget to put your name on the back

And you’re finished!

If you use copy paper, you should be able to cut out 20 eggs, 40 decorative lines and 40 circles with just one copy of the printable! It took me about 5 minutes to have the supplies for 20 kids. How amazing is that?!

This is such a fun and simple Easter egg crafts for preschoolers. It’s the perfect Easter craft for preschool, nursery school, elementary school, for an Easter party or just a fun craft at home idea.

As always, I try to make my crafts fast, easy & inexpensive. Enjoy!
