It's spring! The textures and colors of the season bring new life to crafts and activities with your early learners. Not is the time to embellish crafts with cheerful trimmings in all the pastel colors - pink, yellow, light green and mauve. 

The Easter holiday adds special themed activities to crafting with kids. This is a fun Easter craft that gives kids lots of freedom to create.

Egg foam tray craft supplies


  • foam tray or plate
  • self-adhesive dots


We use foam trays recycled from packaged baked goods rather than meat products to ensure safety of handling. Any trays are thoroughly washed before using in kids activities.



Craft tape on foam eggs activity for kids


1. Draw and cut out an oval egg shape from the foam tray.

Kids can draw and cut out their own shapes, although they might need help cutting the foam tray. 


2. Cut lengths of craft tape to fit the egg. Trim the excess or wrap it around to the back of the egg shape.

Washi tape actually tears easily without using scissor.

Place a few strips of tape on the table for children who find it difficult to cut or tear the tape.

Talk about the patterns kids make with the tape and dots.


Be as creative as you like! Add stars, gems or any other embellishments you might have on hand.

You could add a ribbon hanger to each egg and hang on an Easter 'tree'. 

To make the tree, insert a twig or small branch into a basket or pail. We put a piece of modeling clay on the bottom of our 'tree' to hold it firmly in the small tin pail. Fill the basket or pail with Easter grass or shredded tissue paper.

We used a tree branch in a similar way with heart shapes on a "feelings tree" for a fun sensory activity. 


Enjoy your completed foam egg craft as an Easter decoration!
