Every now and then we like to update a project we’ve made in the past. Back in 2015 we made some really cute Easter egg animals. And now Meagan has created a whole new set for this month’s craft collection. 

Our template below includes four different designs so you can craft a little bunny, lamb, pig, and chick peeking out of some grass. Just check out our supplies list below to get started!

Happy Easter to ewe!

These Easter egg animals would be so fun to craft with kids. Depending on their age, they can help paint (or dye) the eggs, then glue the pieces on. If you end up using the spun cotton eggs, you can keep this craft around as Easter decor for next year, too!

Skill level: Beginner 

Crafting tips: Use a pencil to mark out the eyes, mouth, and nose before painting them on. You can also do this craft with your dyed eggs instead of the spun cotton ones.

Other projects shown: Frosted paper button fern and paper Easter basket
