Two little girls showcasing pop-up Easter puppets craft activity

For Easter this year, make something that's truly eggceptional. We’ve outlined the steps (and resources) for children to create their own egg animal for this year's Easter craft activity.

This craft activity allows children to explore a range of visual arts mediums and experiment with their ideas to create their own distinctive easter animal puppet. These pop-up puppets can also be used for storytelling and dramatic play to extend and develop the craft activity characters into new storylines in play.


Step 1: Children use their own ideas to create an egg animal of choice.
