Start by painting the newspaper tubes in different colors. You can make the eggs colorful by using different colors of paper or more uniform by using only a single color. Select 5 newspaper tubes. Take 2 longer tubes, place them on the table to create a plus sign, then glue the other 3 tubes to it, as shown in the picture. In the end you will have a shape that resembles a star. Take the tubes that it’s on the right side and place it on the top of the third tube. Now do the same with the following tube, but place it on the top of the fourth tubes. Continue doing this until you stacked all the tubes one on top of every second one and it starts to look like and Easter egg. When you reach the top of the egg, secure with glue and cut any excess of newspaper. You can make as many eggs as you like and place them in a basket or give them to your friends as Easter gifts.
