How to Make the Easter Egg Tops:
Before class print out the patterns onto heavy paper.
You can easily make your own patterns for the top if you don’t want to purchase the pattern. Take the egg apart and place one half in the center of a piece of paper so that the open end is on the paper. Trace the egg to make a circle.
Find the center of the circle and use a math compass to draw another circle that is 5 1/4″ in diameter around the first circle.
Draw another smaller circle inside the egg circle.
Cut out the large circle and the inside circle. Cut little slits all the way around the inside of the circle and fold down the tabs.
Color the paper circle with colored pencils. Use the chalk markers to decorate the eggs. The chalk markers will wipe off with use or water but they do make beautiful decorations on the eggs.
Slip the paper onto the egg and tape down.
These tops can be used for not only tops but for spinners for games. Kids will love playing with these tops.
