Tin foil and tissue paper Easter egg craft for kids - Happy Hooligans

To make this Easter egg craft you’ll need:

glue - cardboard egg - tissue paper-craft scraps

  • medium weight cardboard (thicker than a cereal box)
  • tin-foil
  • 1 inch squares of tissue paper in various colours
  • gems, jewels, ribbon, rick-rack etc (or whatever you have on hand) to decorate your egg
  • mod podge (or slightly watered down white glue)
  • glue

Making your egg ornaments:

Cut out your cardboard eggs, and wrap them in tinfoil.  The Hooligans always love that part – wrapping and pressing and scrunching the tin-foil tight to the cardboard.

With a paintbrush, cover the surface of your egg with mod-podge.  You can make your own mod-podge by stirring a couple of drops of water into some white glue.

Press squares of tissue paper onto the mod-podge, using the paintbrush to smooth down the edges.  You can go over the tissue with a layer of mod-podge, but you don’t have to.

When the mod-podge has dried, decorate egg with your jewels, gems and ribbons.
