Create a String of Easter Eggs From Paper and Decorate Them

An Activity Kids Can Do Over Spring Break

Decorated Paper Egg Strip

To create the String of Easter Eggs:

  1. Take a piece of paper.

  2. Fold it into fourths lengthwise.
  3. Folded Paper

  4. Cut into 4 long strips.

  5. Take one strip and fold in half shortwise.
  6. Paper Strip Folded in Half

  7. Fold again in half. There should now be four folded sections.
  8. Paper Strip Folded in Fourths

  9. Cut an egg shape out but leave a little bit on each end in order to connect the eggs--the blue lines (like you would do with paper dolls)
  10. Egg Shape On Foled Paper

  11. Unfold.
  12. String of Paper Eggs

  13. Decorate each of the four eggs the same or decorate each one differently.
  14. Decorated Paper Egg Strip

Ideas for decoration:

  • Crayons
  • Colored Pencils
  • Markers
  • Watercolor Paint
  • Tempra Paint
  • Stickers
  • Cut out Paper Shapes to glue on
  • Scraps of trim
  • Scraps of fabric
  • Again as always, use what you have. Be creative.

After the eggs are decorated, you could punch a hole in the end and hang it up somewhere such as in a window or on nail in the a wall.

If you want them to be longer than four eggs, just tape on the next section, and so on until it is as long as you want.

The eggs will vary in size depending on the width of the beginning strip.
