Tissue Paper Easter Wreath for Toddlers and Preschoolers

Today, we’re kicking off our Spring Craft Collection with this pretty Tissue Paper Easter Wreath!  Mom, you’re going to love how easy this is, and your little ones will love the colour, the texture and the process!

Tissue paper is such a great material to have on hand when you’re making Easter Crafts with your kids. It’s inexpensive, vibrant and versatile, and it’s perfect for making a fluffy, colourful holiday wreath or a sweet Easter decoration.

Why I love crafting with tissue paper:

Kids love crafting with tissue paper, so we use this process for all kinds of holiday crafts.  Fine motor skills are get a work out when kids are working with tissue paper.  It’s so delicate, and the sheets stick together, you really have to concentrate to separate them.  Then there’s the “crumpling”.  Kids LOVE crumpling tissue paper! It sounds great, feels great, and hand muscles are given a work out with all that crunching, crushing and squeezing.

How to make a tissue paper Easter wreath:

Cut a wreath out of a paper plate or light-wieght cardboard.  A cereal box would work well for this.  I traced a dinner plate for the outer circle, and a kid’s bowl for the inner circle.

Have your little one crumple 3×3 squares of tissue paper, and glue them all over the wreath.
