Welcome back for the last installment of “what can you do with the free Easter Egg printable?” Today’s craft is another childhood favorite. This one comes to you care of one of the handful of Sunday school classes I attended as a child, lollipop covers. I remember making about 4 covered lollipops, sticking them into bits of styrofoam placed in a piece of egg carton and covering the styrofoam with Easter shred so you couldn’t see it. I remember proudly walking to my mother after the class, ever so carefully holding my egg carton filled with lollipops, with a beaming smile on my face. Oh the funny things we remember from our childhood! I’m happy to remember all the crafty things I did as a child, and believe me, if it was crafty, I remember it! Then I save these memories for when my girls are just the right age and I pull them out of my sleeve and sit down for an afternoon of crafting! This is another one of those simple crafts I love making with my children!
The free Easter Egg printable sheet is designed with two rows of Easter eggs to make it easy for you to make lollipop covers with your children, again it’s all in the cutting! All you need is the free Easter Egg printable sheet, scissors, hole punch, tape and some lollipops.
Cut out each pair of eggs with a bridge between the eggs and a tab on one egg.
You can omit the tab on the egg and it will work out just fine.
Punch a hole in the bridge between the two eggs.
With the patterned side down, slide the lollipop into the hole.
Fold both sides up (patterned eggs now facing outwards).
If using the tab, fold the tab, slip inside the egg on the backside and secure with tape.
If not using the tab, use a dab of glue near the top of the eggs (on the blank side) to glue the eggs together or use a bit of tape to secure the front and back sides.
I think a selection of these in an Easter basket, or in half of an egg carton, would be a very cute display for an Easter luncheon or gift for a parent or sibling.
