Paired with some fun Easter literature selections {see our list of favorite books below}, this Easter egg suncatcher craft from Miya Maeda of Jellyfish Jelly would be the perfect holiday project for your preschoolers!

Supplies You'll Need

A few considerations...

While Miya offers a fabulous tutorial on her site, we had a few thoughts about the project. We love the idea of cutting an egg shape out of both paper plates, exposing the cellophane or tissue paper on both sides, and allowing sunlight to shine through. Constructing the plates this way, whether you hang them on the window or let them dangle from the ceiling, you're sure to get vibrant color!

Pair this craft with some fun Easter reading...

  • Easter Bunny's Amazing Egg Machine by Wendy Cheyette Lewison
  • Home for a Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown
  • Little Bunny's Easter Surprise by Jeanne Modesitt
  • The Easter Egg by Jan Brett
  • The Biggest Easter Basket Ever by Steven Kroll
  • Happy Easter, Mouse! by Laura Numeroff
  • The Night Before Easter by Natasha Wing

...and you'll have a fun craftivity that your preschoolers are sure to enjoy!
