- Colored Tissue Paper
- Craft Glue (We love Elmer’s.)
- Brown or Black Construction Paper
- White Craft Paper
Start by cutting the tissue paper into 1 inch squares. (Or purchase these pre-cut squares.)
Have your child to glue the tissue paper squares onto their white craft paper. They may choose to glue them in a pattern, or just randomly glue the squares.
Once they are finished gluing the tissue paper, cut a cross shape from the brown construction paper. Glue it atop the colored squares.
As an alternative, your child can glue the cross on first and then add the tissue paper.
This is what my preschooler did, applying his glue stick very liberally, all over his paper, so he could sprinkle his tissue paper pieces onto the glue so he wouldn’t need to touch the sticky tissue paper pieces.
This simple preschooler Easter craft is a wonderful way to start a discussion about the reason behind Easter.
