This Easter, make colorful Easter egg baskets that you can use for decorations year after year. Using colorful scrap paper, markers, crayons, glitter and whatever other decorating craft you have on hand, you can make one-of-a-kind centerpieces.
Kids of all ages will have fun making these paper egg decorations using scrap paper. Cutting paper is a great way to develop fine motor skills in children, and this project is a fun way to use the leftover pieces from other projects. Attach scrap paper using our sugar glue paste to create fun patterns and bright colors! Use our sugar glue recipe below to make the paper stick.
