Paper Weave Egg

Paper Egg Craft #4

  • 1 Egg cut out of white cardstock
  • 2 pieces of Colorful paper (scrapbook paper, construction paper; we used wallpaper)
  • Tape
Here's what you do:
  1. Cut out 5-6 strips of each piece of the 2 colorful papers.
  2. Lay one of the colors of strips facedown on a table, horizontally. Place the egg on top. Then one of the ends of each paper around the egg and tape down. 
  3. Repeat with the 2nd bunch of strips, only going vertically. After you tape them down, it will look like picture #1 below from the back, and picture #2 from the front.
  4. Start weaving. (Like in the pictures below, alternate the strips) 
When I did this with the boys (5 & 2), I had them take turns placing one of the strips down as I held them up in between.
