Print out our egg templates and have fun decorating them into lovely paper Easter eggs. Place them inside a paper basket, stick them onto an Easter tree or use them as Easter decor for your home or classroom.
Print out any of these printable egg sets on A4 or Letter size paper or cardstock.
If you printed out the plain eggs, draw some lines, shapes, patterns or even some fun images like bunnies or flowers.
Color or paint the eggs.
Try some fun ways to color and decorate the plain eggs. These ideas are really easy to do especially with young kids.
Use your fingers or some cotton buds - paint dots, zigzags and lines on the eggs using your fingers or the tip of a cotton bud.
Try some sponge brushes - use sponge brushes and roller brushes to paint the eggs. It is a good idea to cut out the eggs first before painting them.
Roll up some crepe paper - make "crayons" out of crepe paper by cutting 2" wide strips and rolling each strip tightly like a cigar. Wet the tip of each rolled crepe paper and dab onto the eggs.
Glue some decorations - after coloring or painting the eggs, add some accents by putting stickers or gluing paper or foam shapes, buttons, ribbons, small pompoms and other fun notions.
Cut out the paper eggs.
Use the paper eggs as Easter decorations. Put masking tape at the back and stick them onto walls or bulletin boards. You can also use them for Easter games and other learning activities.
Make paper egg ornaments by adding a handle. Cut a piece of string, then tape the ends at the back of the paper egg.
This particular paper egg was decorated with washi tape placed in neat rows.
Make an easy paper basket that you can put the eggs in. Follow Steps 1 to 6 of our Basket of Flowers craft for instructions.
