  1. Start by drawing an egg shape on a thin cardboard like one from a cereal box.
  2. Next, cut the egg shape from the thin cardboard. I used a cereal box but you can use whatever is available in your home.
  3. Gather your scraps of paper, old magazines and tissue paper to decorate the Easter egg.
  4. Finally, use the scissors to cut different shapes from the paper then glue to egg.

My son is always so focused when hes’s working on an art project or any other activity. This was a great way for him to practice using safety scissors since he is no longer in school. Have your child tear the paper if they are not ready to use the scissors.
