Textured Easter Eggs Sensory Art!
Beautiful vibrant colors and interesting textures make this Easter craft a sensory dream come true!
Supplies Needed:
  • Colored Cotton Balls or Pom Poms
  • White Glue 
  • Double Sided Tape
  • 2  Sheets Yellow Construction Paper or Foam Paper
  • Buttons in Different Colors & Sizes
  • 6 Pipe Cleaners, 2 in each of 3 colors
  • Scissors
  • Newspaper To Keep The Work Area Clean
Time Needed:  
  • 15-30 Minutes for each textured egg craft plus drying time
What To Do:
  •  Colored Cotton Ball Textured Egg:
  1. Print egg template and cut out 3 eggs from construction paper or foam paper. You only need to use the egg shape from the template.

  2. The foam paper we used had an adhesive back so we used the sticky side to attach the colored cotton balls. If you aren't using that, apply glue or double sided tape to the first egg.
    Adhesive back on our foam sheet revealed. Use double sided
    tape or glue if you are using a different item.
    Attach colored cotton balls in any way you like!
    Ahh! Beautiful, Soft, & Fun to Touch!
  3. Attach the colored cotton to the egg.
  4. Let dry completely, if necessary.
    My son approves :)
  • Button Textured Easter Egg:
  1. The foam paper we used had an adhesive back so we used the sticky side to attach the buttons. If you aren't using that, apply glue or double sided tape to the second egg.
  2. Sort buttons by color if you want your egg to look similar to ours.
    This is something my kids really enjoy. The feel, sound, and sight of the
    buttons is irresistible to them!
  3. Attach buttons to the egg.
    We peeled back the adhesive a little at a time because
    it was very strong and we were getting stuck to it!
  4. Let dry completely, if necessary.
    LOVE IT! Beautiful!
  • Pipe Cleaner Textured Easter Egg: 
  1. Wrap a pipe cleaner around a pen or your finger.

  2. Remove pipe cleaner. It should be squiggly.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for all pipe cleaners (6).
  4. The foam paper we used had an adhesive back so we used the sticky side to attach the pipe cleaners. Apply double sided tape to your last egg.
    HINT: I also did this without the sticky back foam and it worked best using double sided tape and NOT glue if you have it.
  5. Stretch or compress the squiggly pipe cleaner so it will fit the width of the egg where you are placing it.
  6. Press flat to attach to the egg.
  7. Repeat until all pipe cleaners are used and egg is covered.
  8. Let dry completely, if necessary.
  • Put it all together!
  1. Use double sided tape or white glue to attach all 3 eggs to a sheet of construction paper or sheet of foam paper.
  2. Let dry completely, if necessary. 
  3. Hang with pride and admire! Go ahead and touch it!
  4. Don't Forget to Take a photo and share it with us! You are automatically entered into our WEEKLY GIVEAWAY on our Facebook Page when you post a photo of your finished project and "Like" Us ! Giveaway is randomly selected.

    Looking Fantastic Together! Great to look at and touch!
