All of Our Eggs in One Basket

We provide many opportunities for our preschoolers to use scissors. Our Easter bulletin board was a large blue basket filled with colorful eggs.  How do we do it?

Paper is an expensive item for any school.  We are very fortunate to have had lots of paper donated to our program for our art center and copy paper for weekly newsletters and classroom activities. We also use wallpaper I find at garage sales and thrift stores.  These whole rolls are usually very cheap and if I'm lucky sometimes free!
We use the backside of wallpaper to cover bulletin boards.  We also used the wallpaper for Easter eggs.  Our 3 y/o class had stenciled eggs to cut and then pressed 'the easy button'.  Our preK class had to trace the egg, cut and then press 'the easy button'.  Each student also added a tally mark and we will count the eggs when we return to school.
