It’s that time of year when it’s an eggcellent idea to have an eggstremely eggsuberant eggstravaganza of eggy crafts!
How about dying some eggs with natural colours – a wonderful science experiment and a great lesson in colours. You can find a ‘how to dye eggs‘ guide with some recipe ideas over at Ready for Ten this week. We used hollow eggs, with the insides blown out, as they will last much longer as decorations this way. We had lots of fun blowing out the contents of our eggs before dying them – L said ‘This is actually cool!’ My two (aged four and eight) had no problems handling the shells without any cracks – so you might like to give it a try. (Of course you can also hard boil your eggs if you want them to be more robust.)
And how to decorate eggs? My two decided on an animal theme, using felt shapes, feathers and pens to create the lovely creatures above. We used a basic PVA craft glue to stick the feathers on.I also love the superhero egg the boys at The Mad House created – very cool!
Are you decorating eggs with your children? Take a photo and share it with us over on our Facebook page – the girls would love to see them!
