I really love these Easter egg crafts. This Easter egg garland could also be used as a countdown to the Easter holidays. We always love it when crafts double as Christmas decorations! That is exactly the case with this Easter craft paper.

Preschool Easter Egg Paper Garland Crafts

There are so many fun ways you can “decorate” your Easter eggs for the Easter Egg Garland. You can see the example above of using markers to “paint” the egg in deep colorful rainbow colors. Another example of this can be seen below.

We wanted to make it as easy as possible for preschoolers’ fingers to successfully create beautifully decorated eggs while practicing some necessary fine motor skills without frustration.

Instructions for making paper Easter egg garlands

Step 1

Step 1 - Easter Egg Garland Crafts for Kids - Draw your egg cutter or shape on colored paper
Let’s start making egg shapes on our colored paper

We started by drawing Easter egg shapes on our paper. We traced an egg-shaped cutter, but you could draw the eggs freehand if you didn’t have a cutter. This was a great opportunity to practice the pincer grip.

Fine motor skills tip: If your child is having trouble holding a pen, read this information about how to hold a pen and what to do if it is difficult.

step 2

After drawing your egg shapes on the paper, use scissors to cut out the egg shapes.

step 3

Step 3 - Easter Egg Garland Crafts for Kids - decorate your eggs now that they're cut out!
Get creative with “decorating” your eggs!

After the egg shapes are cut out, it’s time to decorate!

We put dot stickers on the eggs. This was a fantastic activity to practice fine motor skills. If you don’t have dot stickers handy, all the stickers look fun and colorful!

Let them decorate the paper egg shapes however they like! Grab your crayons, markers, paint and glitter for unlimited egg decorating ideas.

step 4

Step 4 - Make Easter Egg Garland for Kids - Use a hole punch to poke a hole in the top of the egg and thread a string through it
Now let’s assemble the eggs into a garland.

Once all of the eggs were decorated we used a hole punch to add two holes at the top of each egg.

This was another great fine motor activity and an excellent opportunity to strengthen those hand muscles – very important for later handwriting mastery.

step 5

After we drilled two holes in each egg, it was time to thread the eggs onto string so the garland could be hung on the wall.

Threading is another fantastic way to practice fine motor skills. My son loves threading and had a blast stringing these eggs.

Our finished Easter egg garland turned out so cute!

After you’ve threaded all of the eggs onto the string, it’s time to hang your garland and admire your colorful work!

  • We hung ours on the wall but it would look so colorful and fun above a window or even under a door frame. You can even place it over the mantel (when not lit).
  • You can use any color from the color palette or even use fun stickers.
  • Maybe some Easter bunny stickers and carrots to not only make this DIY garland egg themed, but also Easter bunny garlands and carrot garlands.
  • It’s your Easter egg garland, make it as festive and creative as you like.

Another way to hang an Easter egg garland

Instead of a hole punch, use cute little clothespins!

We’ve talked about using a hole punch at the top to punch holes for the twine or twine to be threaded to hang the garland. Another option is to use small clothespins. Or regular clothespins will work too!

Pinching the clothespins to hang up the Easter eggs also promotes fine motor skills and strength.

Use Easter egg garland as a countdown to Easter

After we hung our garland, my son decided he wanted to use the garland for a countdown to Easter:

  1. Leave out as many eggs as there are days until Easter.
  2. Add an Easter egg to the garland each day.
  3. Your garland will grow as Easter approaches.

If you’re working on numbers or counting, you can incorporate these lessons into counting the number of dots on each remaining egg, or writing countdown numbers or even the calendar date on the eggs.
