This week in our Home School Craft, me and my boy decided to celebrate Easter by decorating Easter eggs and crack open a few eggs, use the empty shells and decorate them as cute little furry characters. This way we have some a few Easter decorations, handmade, sitting out for everyone to see and for my boy to be proud of.
Supply List for decorating easter eggs:
- Empty Egg Shells
- Construction Paper
- Tissue Paper
- Clear Tape
- Small Buttons or Googly eyes
- Cotton Balls and Craft Puff Balls
Its your choice of colors, so just get creative and let your little one pick and choose.
- We started our project by gently cracking open 2 eggs, close to the top as I could get them.
- Empty out the contents, we made scrambles eggs with our 🙂 then rinse out the inside of your eggs.
- Once we were done with breakfast we gathered all of our supplies and began to cut out little construction paper strips, making them into circles to rest our eggs into.
- With the glue we brushed it over top of the tissue paper to make our bunnies vest.
- Cut out his ears, glued them onto the cotton ball that we glued into the inside of the eggshell.
- Glued on their button eyes (or google eye if you have them). Attached their feet on to the bottom of our paper circles and there we had it! Our bunny and duckling Easter decorations.
Now just a tip, you may need to use tape on some areas instead of glue, it just depends on you and how long you want to wait for the glue to dry before moving on to the next step. We have tape on our construction paper and that really helped keep the ducks feet on.
Have fun decorating easter eggs with your child and I hope that you enjoy! See you next week!
