Washi Tape Crafts – Easter Egg Banner !

easter egg craft for kids with washi tape We love washi tape crafts and I actually bought these rolls for something else but this craft couldn’t wait. Our bunnies are already out on our mantle and we needed something to complete our Easter decor. Handmade holiday decor is always my favorite. I love getting these crafts out year after year and hearing my children tell me the stories about how they were made.  This Easter craft is perfect for people who are a little gun shy about crafting mess but still want to make something colorful and fun with their kids.

Gather your materials. You will need some paper, washi tape ( affiliate link for the tape I used) scissors, pencil, and string if you are turning the eggs into a banner. washi tape easter egg craft for preschoolAlso I love using trays to keep everything in one spot.washi tape crafts

Start by drawing an egg on the paper. I made some and left some blank. easter egg crafts As you will see my daughter made her own after. I had a regular white pieces of paper folded and cut in 4 and eggs drawn on some but some left blank. I wanted to give her the option of making her own but not requiring her to.

Invite your artist to come create!Tape easter eggs

She got into adding the tape right away. I had to show her how to rip the tape once but after that she had a handle on it. You can also use scissors. Tape past the lines covering as much as the egg as you can. tape easter eggs washi tape

Cut out the egg once all the tape is on. egg washi tape craft Watching her cut gave me a jolt of nostalgia. She is growing so fast I can’t believe she is so good with scissors already. Wasn’t she just playing with blocks in her high chair? <— her first activity on the blog!

Repeat. easter egg craft for kids I made a few and she made a few. I am glad I had paper ready without any outline because she did want to make her own. easter egg craft

After you have a good collection of eggs easter egg crafts for preschoolflip them over and using the washi tape attach the eggs onto the string. easter egg banner for kids

Spring Flower Fine Motor Tray Activity

fine motor tray activity This super simple spring activity packs some wonderful skill practice for both hand eye coordination and fine motor skills. As children find and fit the flowers into the holes they are using their hand eye coordination skills and as they pinch the stem and press them into the floral foam under the colander they are giving their fine motor skills a workout.

Gather your materials. You will need a colander, some bunches of artificial flowers, scissors, and floral foam in a half circle shape. spring activity for preschool

Start by flipping your colander over on top of the floral foam. fine motor activity for preschool

Snip the flowers and lay them out ready for play. flower activity for preschool

All ready!

My daughter was so eager to play. She decided to put them in using a pattern pink then yellow. flower arrangements fine motor activity for preschool

As she popped them in she counted them first all the flowers, then after they were all in she counted the yellow, then pink. fine motor

This will be taken into my preschool class to help my 2.5 and 3 year old students develop their hand eye coordination as well as fine motors skills and it will make my classroom so cheery as well!fine motor flower arrangements preschool
