Easy Easter Craft: Stained Glass Easter Egg

Here's an easy Easter Craft if you're looking for one. I prepped all the materials ahead of time and it was easy for the kids to complete on their own while I did some cleaning.

All you need:

  • Construction Paper
  • Contact Paper 
  • Tissue Paper
  • Scissors
Prep all your materials
  • Cut a large egg shape out of your child's chosen construction paper color. 
  • After you have cut out the egg shape, fold in half and cut out the middle. This leaves an egg outline.
  • Cut up tiny squares of tissue paper, use a variety of spring colors.
  • Cut two sheets of contact paper large enough for your egg to fit inside.

  • Peel and lay down your first sheet of contact paper in front of your child. Then lay down your egg outline.
  • Let the kids fill in the egg using the tissue paper, for an older child they could do a pattern.
  • After they have completely filled in the egg, lay the next sheet of peeled contact paper down on top to create a laminated effect. 
  • Admire your child's craftiness and hang in your window!

The kids enjoyed this craft!
