Easter Egg, Easter Cards

With Easter coming up we have already started to make our cards.

What you need
•A4 card
•wool
•coloured paper, crepe or tissue paper can also be used.
• scissors, sellotape, glue and pens.

To make the card I helped my children first fold the card in half. I then gave them glue and coloured paper, asking them to rip the paper into pieces to glue on the front of the card.

While the children where glueing the paper down I cut out egg shapes from card. Not forgetting to cut notches out of the sides of the egg.

I cut a length of wool and sellotaped it to the back

I then handed an egg to each child and asked them to wrap the wool around the egg.

My older children managed this fine but Puppy needed some help.
Once fully wrapped with wool we sellotaped the end of the wool on the back and glued this on top off the card.

My children loved making these cards and I think they look fantastic.
