Younger kids won’t be able to complete this project using training scissors, but it’s a great way for older kids to practice their scissor and precision skills! It has increasing levels of difficulty depending on the number of circles in the design you choose, and you can use the finished product to make an Easter egg garland!

How to Make Cardstock Easter Eggs

Required Materials

Here’s what you’ll need to practice scissor skills with these gorgeous cardstock Easter eggs:

  • My free Easter egg printable, which you can download using the form at the bottom of this article
  • Pastel cardstock (or any other colour you want, but I find pastel colours very Eastery!)
  • Scissors
  • Stick of regular or repositionable school glue

Step-by-Step Instructions

1. Print Template

Start by choosing the Easter egg design you like best and printing it on two contrasting sheets of cardstock.

2. Cut Template

Once you’ve printed the template, start by cutting out the eggs.

Then, decide which colour will be the background and cut up the other one right along the black lines. I tried to keep the black lines in the finished product by cutting right next to them. As you can see, it made the cuts look really clean!

3. Glue Cutouts

Once you’re done cutting, glue the contrasting pattern onto the background. I used repositionable glue so I could easily readjust the position of the pattern if I didn’t place it exactly in the right spot, but that shouldn’t be too hard to do with regular school glue either if that’s what you have.

And that’s it! This project is so simple, but it’s a great way for older kids to practice cutting with scissors! They’ll also have to work on their precision skills when they glue the pattern onto the background.

I wanted to give you a good idea of what the finished craft could look like, so I used all the patterns included in the template. This is what my cardstock Easter eggs ended up looking like:

For extra fun, I made sure to vary the colour combinations. I swear that’s an actual picture, not an image I created on my computer!
