Easter Egg Sun Catchers

Today we made some simple but fun Easter egg sun catchers.
We were inspired to make some Easter Eggs after reading The Great Easter Egg Hunt by Michael Garland. This is a cute Easter book with many beautiful illustrations. It is about a boy that is following a bunny and notes left by his Aunt to find a Easter surprise. It has chocolate bunnies, chicks,  lambs, words, Easter bonnets and eggs hidden in every illustration. Alex really enjoyed looking for them on each page. He really like "Ispy" and "Look and Find" books.

To make our sun catchers we simply ripped up some colorful tissue paper into small pieces. Of course Alex enjoyed ripping the paper and then we stuck them randomly to egg shaped clear Contact paper. We sprinkled on some multicolored glitter and then covered then with another piece of Contact paper.

I punched a hole in them and added a piece of fishing line and we hung them up in a window.
