Want to try something new for Easter? Usually teachers have students design and color an Easter egg. But how about designing, coloring, and BUILDING a 3D Easter egg!
Follow these tips and directions to get started:
*Tip-You should COLOR and make one yourself BEFORE doing this with your class. It will let you anticipate the challenging phases so you can address them to your class before they run into those challenging phases themselves.
*Tip-Emphasize over and over that they should NOT CUT THE TABS OFF!!
*Tip- If your children are 2nd or 3rd graders it would be helpful to have parent volunteers be present to ensure everything runs smoothly.
1. Print all the slides out on copy paper. Design and color THE BACK SIDE of the Easter egg with the tabs all over it. The outline of the egg will be visible on the other side for them to design and color.
2. Have students cut out their design.
3. Have students design and color THE BACK SIDE of each of the trimming or sides of the Easter egg (the rectangular strips with tabs all over them).
4. Have them cut all the sides (make sure you emphasize not to cut off the tabs).
5. Cut out the inside of the egg.
6. Glue the rectangular strips by number to the Easter egg.
7. Pass the egg through the cut out of the egg.
8. Glue the tabs to the back of the paper and you should be finished.
