Supplies for Easter egg foam craft from preschooltoolkit.com

  • foam tray
  • craft tape
  • self-adhesive dots

We use foam trays recycled from packaged baked goods rather than meat products to ensure safety of handling the trays, even though the trays are washed.

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

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

2. Cut lengths of craft tape to fit the egg. Trim the excess.

Wiki 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.

...........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.

Enjoy your completed foam egg craft as an Easter decoration!
