- long piece of wool, ribbon or string
How to make your Easter egg garland, step by step
First, print the Easter egg garland template.
This template has two pages – one page has a ‘Happy Easter’ egg on it, and the second page has two patterned eggs (one dotty and one zig-zag).
For the garland pictured above, we printed off one of the Happy Easter eggs, and three copies of the patterned eggs.
This gave us seven eggs in total.
Of course you can print off as many copies of the eggs as you’d like. If you want to make a long garland, print lots!
(If you’re making an Easter garland to decorate a classroom, each child can decorate an egg and then you can string them together to make a nice long garland).
Decorate your eggs! Your child can use whatever colouring supplies they like here.
We used colouring pencils although this is also a great activity for paint too.
Next, cut out each egg.
At the top of each egg, punch two holes using a hole punch.
Thread a piece of wool, string or ribbon through the eggs. Space the eggs out evenly along the string so that none of the eggs are overlapping.
To keep the eggs in place and to stop them sliding along the string when you hang them, use small pieces of tape to secure the string to the back of each egg.
And with that, your Easter egg garland is finished!
