Gather construction paper cut into egg shapes, hole punch, scissors, tape, and yarn.
For young preschoolers, punch holes around the perimeter of the egg about one inch apart. For older preschoolers, draw dots on the egg to show where the holes will go. The child punches holes over the dots. Cut a length of yarn. Tape one end of the yarn to the egg. Wrap a small piece of tape over the other end of the yarn to create a needle.
The child laces the yarn through the holes in any pattern she chooses. When the child is finished, tape the other end of the yarn to the egg.
