10 Paper Egg Crafts!

Do you lay awake at night tossing and turning, trying to come up with ideas for Easter crafts that will be fun for kids and be easier than making pop-tarts?
If you answer "no" to this question then, Congratulations!!
You are normal.

As for me, my abnormal self, and I, the answer is "yes." (Which, ironically, led to my family and I consuming pop-tarts for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner the following day due to my exhaustion). 

And so I bring you not one, nor 9, nor anywhere in between....but 10 easy and fun paper egg crafts you can make with your kids! Straight from my weary mind to yours.

Over the next couple weeks, I will be posting all 10 ideas, so come on back y'all and check 'em out!

You may find 1 or 2 of these you like and want to try with your kids. 
Or you could even do all 10, (maybe as a countdown!) crafting one egg each day until Easter! 
(Easter is April 8, so you would want to start the countdown March 29th or 30th, depending on what day you want it to end. Or choose 7-8 eggs and start April 1st.)

The first thing I did, was use a piece of 8.5x11" white paper to cut the egg template. I just folded it in half and tried to cut an egg shape as best I could.....(like an oval, but bigger on the bottom, smaller at the top.)

Then I traced it onto 10 pieces of white cardstock and cut them out. Now we're ready to go!

Let the Egg-crafting begin!
(Well, starting tomorrow, that is. I need some sleep.)
