So what are you waiting for? Let’s start crafting the Letter E is for Eel craft with the kids!
Craft supplies you will need:
- Alphabet Letter E template
- Eel template
- Eggs hollowed out
- Construction paper
- Washable paint
- Washable markers
- Small plastic Ziploc bag
Print off the Eel template and Alphabet Letter E template on two different colors of construction paper.
Starting with an empty eggshell, have the child paint the eggshell a dark color. Let dry. We placed our eggshells on a paintbrush handle and then in a cup to dry.
Next, have the children cut out Alphabet Letter E and the Eel.
Once done, have the children glue the Eel onto Alphabet Letter E.
When the eggshell is dry, place it in a plastic bag and have the children pound the eggshell till it is broken into small pieces.
Then, have the children apply glue all over their Eel and glue the eggshell pieces onto their Eel.
Once done, have the children punch holes into their Eels and use yarn to hang.
And, voila, the children now have an Eggshell Eel for their Alphabet Letter E craft.
