easter wreath – recycled egg boxes!

To make this colourful wreath the children need egg boxes, ready mix paint, a paper plate cut into a ring, double sided glue squares (we used Sellotape sticky fixers) and some foam shapes and if you want a bow, crepe paper. (Don’t unfold it simply cut strips from a new pack)

For very young children you need to do some things for them ahead of time. For toddler group I cut the egg boxes and painted them too. You could easily let the children do the painting but our painting area was sadly out of action! Some egg boxes are different colours to start with so less painting was needed. I also cut the paper plates to make a ring. Using brightly coloured plates makes a difference to the finished craft.

Older children could do a lot of this themselves.
