One of our favourite crafts for kids is making sun catchers. There is something really appealing about making something colourful which reflects the light. We wanted a different idea for an Easter craft rather than the flat contact paper and tissue suncatchers we usually make. This was why we decided to use some transparent plastic eggs to make suncatcher Easter eggs which we could hang on our Easter tree.
All you need for this craft is some sharpies, string or ribbon and transparent plastic eggs.
Even the cat enjoyed having a go!
You can decorate the eggs however you want. This is a really simple craft for all ages. We used pretty pastel sharpies. You can then draw any Easter or Spring pattern you like. Butterflies and flowers look really pretty.
We used matching pastel ribbon.
When they are done then you can hang them on a ribbon. To make the Easter tree we found some sticks from the garden and spray painted them with white spray paint. This is not suitable for children to do. Make sure you are in a well-ventilated area for for the spray paint. You can then use the twigs for decorating at other times of year.
For an easy pattern you can just add dots in different Easter colours. Or make the dots
These would be lovely with little chicks and chocolate eggs
The eggs look lovely when they catch the light.
Pin for later!
