You will need:
- Eggs (however many you intend to eat)
- Paint brushes
- Something to stand the eggs in whilst you work
Firstly we boiled our eggs and put them aside to cool. Once cool, we stood them up in an egg holder and began painting them.
Once we were happy with our designs, we left them to dry. When fully dried, we peeled our eggs and ate them for lunch. It was that simple and no waste!
Make your own Easter nest
You will need:
- A4 card (yellow or white would work best)
- 2 x coloured A4 card (we opted for green and blue)
To begin we folded the yellow card in half long ways and cut. Only one half is needed, so the other half can be kept for another project. Taking one half we used the scissors to round the corners of one side to make a bowl shape.
Next we covered one side in glue and stuck down the straw to cover. We realised after that it would have probably been easier to do the following steps first, and this last, but it still worked out just fine.
Next we moved on to making the eggs. We folded both sheets of coloured card in half, and then in half again, cutting into four equal parts. Taking three of each colour we cut them into the shape of eggs. With the last section of each colour, we cut them into strips, zigzags and circles.
Taking the three green eggs, we decorated them with the blue strips, zigzags and circles, then we done the same with the blue eggs and green decorations.
Finally we stuck our eggs into the nest, and our Easter inspired craft was complete.
Design your own Easter egg
To make two, you will need:
- A4 sheet of card (we opted for green)
- Crayons or felts
- Lolly sticks
We began by folding the coloured card in half and cutting, then we cut each section into an egg shape.
The boys then used their crayons to draw patterns onto their eggs. Next they used the glue to add the pompoms, lolly sticks and sequins on.
Very simple, but lots of fun!
