Easter Egg Collage

Easter Lambs

Palm Branch Easter Craft

Supplies Needed:

Green construction paper
Green pipe cleaner

Cut out a leaf shape from green construction paper. Glue a green pipe cleaner to the middle of the leaf. Let your child cut slits in the leaf.

“Remind your child to keep “thumbs up” when they hold scissors. Tell them to hold the paper with one hand and take tiny little “bites” with the jaws of the scissors."
From Hands on Art by Dr. Jean Feldman
