Materials 

Creating crumpled tissue Easter eggs requires minimal materials that are easily accessible and affordable. Here are the supplies you will need:

1. Tissue Paper

Choose tissue paper in a variety of vibrant colours. The more colours you have, the more visually appealing your students’ Easter eggs will be. Consider using pastel shades for a traditional and festive touch.

2. Thick Paper 

Use thick paper like cardstock or construction paper. Printer paper will work but will not be as strong when glue and weight are applied.

3. Scissors

Have a pair of scissors available for cutting the tissue paper into smaller pieces if needed. This step is optional but can be useful when working with younger students who may struggle with tearing the paper.

4. Glue

To hold the crumpled tissue paper together and ensure the Easter eggs retain their shape, you will need a bottle of glue. A clear-drying glue is recommended for a neater finish.

 

Now that you have all the necessary materials, it’s time to dive into the step-by-step process of creating Crumpled Tissue Easter Eggs. Follow these instructions to ensure a successful and enjoyable crafting session with your students.

Step 4. Crumple and Cover 

Gently press it down, ensuring that it sticks to the paper. Continue adding more pieces of tissue paper, overlapping them slightly, until the paper is completely covered.

Step 5: Let Dry 

This may take a few hours, so it’s best to leave the egg undisturbed until the tissue paper feels firm to the touch. Once dry, you can use it as decoration on the wall, or add a string to hang on an Easter tree or window!
