Kids of all ages will enjoy making a sticky egg suncatcher using contact paper plus bits and bobs as decorations. A no-mess craft for Easter!
This sticky Easter egg suncatcher is so easy to make! Working on contact/sticky paper is an interesting alternative to pasting with glue. What I like about it, is that it is not messy at all, so even babies can start making “crafts” like these using contact paper.
What you need:
- piece of contact/ sticky paper(the bigger the better, I’d say)
- paper with a egg shape drawn on it(the size will depend on the piece of contact paper you have)
- sequins or shiny objects
- cutouts (we’ve used pastel coloured ones L punched out a while ago)
- ribbon or any other flat decorative objects
What to do:
Place the sticky paper over the egg shape, sticky side up.
Stick the sequins on the drawn line of the egg to outline the egg shape. Now let your child go wild and fill the egg with your cutouts and other decorative items.
When done, cut the egg shape out, leaving 2cm of sticky paper as a border so it will stick to your window!
Such a fun sticky egg activity, semi-open-ended for younger children! One could make it more structured for older kids if you want to let them use patterns to fill the shape. Simply provide a patterned egg picture under the sticky paper with objects that will fit onto the pattern!
