Six Geese a-Laying Craft

Six Geese a-Laying Craft

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me six geese a-laying, five gold rings, four calling birds, three French hens, two turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree. For the sixth day of Christmas this year, my daughter and I made six paper geese laying paper eggs.

Instructions

  1. Cut the white paper into six figure 8 shapes with one circle larger than the other.
  2. Cut six ovals from the white paper.
