This simple garland craft idea creates Easter characters from colored paper that are hung up on the walls and doorways around your house to add some fun and excitement to your household this Easter.

Cutting and layering the paper to create an Easter bunny or baby chick will be a good challenge for toddlers and preschool age children. And they will light up as this garland decoration takes shape.

Below you will find full instructions and a video demonstration so you can make your own egg carton Easter garland at home.

Paper Easter Egg Garland Craft Activity

Prepare Your Colored Paper and Craft Materials

If you have a variety of colored paper then that will get you through 90% of this craft project.

You may have some leftover yarn laying around the house, and a few clothespins are all you need to hang up your creations around the house. 

If you don’t have a stash of googly eyes you can just use white paper circles cut out also.
