Make Your Kids Think with a Cardboard Egg Puzzle
- Two pieces of cardboard
- Markers or paint
- Scissors or a hobby knife
First, draw an egg with your pencil on a large flat piece of cardboard.
Take your time, coloring with a marker or improving your painting skills. You can create any design you’d like for your cardboard egg. The more creative you are, the better the puzzle will look!
After everything is dry, cut a smaller egg in your design that leaves enough room for a border. Then, slice up your puzzle however complicated you’d like.
When you’re done, take the outlined cardboard egg and glue it flat on the other piece of cardboard to act as a base for your puzzle pieces.
Storage is best in a plastic storage container or box to avoid denting the puzzle. This fun Easter activity is quick and easy for all ages.

Decoration doesn’t necessarily have to follow the video. The video guides uses spring-themed cardstock for a smooth color all over the cardboard bunny. You can outline the peek of cardboard on the side with string pearls or paint.
Regardless of how you decorate it, this will be a blast for your kids to practice their fine motor skills and have art they’re really proud of.
