Remember making Easter eggs with the fizzy tablets and then popping the box apart to make a little paper Easter egg holder? Well these free printable egg holders take that idea and add a pinch of creativity and color. Print, cut, and add your own details with any medium you choose!
Supplies for Easter egg holders…
Start with the free printable. These print in black and white which is easy on your printing budget as well as providing a completely blank canvas for your little person to create. Three blank templates are included; a flower shape, a bunny, and a chick. With no interior details printed your kids will be able to make endless combinations.
Print these on tag board for a sturdy egg holder that will accept any color you want to throw at. We used Sharpie markers for details plus washable markers for a splash of color. You could add watercolor, colored pencils, or even crayons! You’ll also need scissors for cutting and tape to secure the egg holder around the egg. That’s it!
Where to color….
These little guys fold up so that means that both sides of the paper will show at some point and you’ll want to add color there. Start by cutting the shapes out. Everything on the front of each shape will show when folded up except the arms. Nothing on the back of the cut out shape will show when folded except the back of the arms. So, basically, color everything on the front except the arms. Then flip your Easter egg holder over and color the arm. If this confuses your kiddo- just color both sides!
Fold your Easter egg holder up…..
Once your Easter egg holder is colored fold it in half on that dotted line. Bend the “arms” around to meet in the front like they’re going to give the egg a hug. Eggs are all different sizes so you may have to adjust. We have our own chickens and get teeny tiny eggs as well as monster sized eggs. These Easter egg holders accommodated all of the above!
We fixed the arms with a tiny loop of tape. You could also use a stapler for a quick and sturdy connection.
