With Easter right around the corner it’s always a fun time to decorate Easter Eggs. This year I was looking for something fun and different and found these fun ideas from Disney FamilyFun. Enjoy!
- Egg dye
- White eggs, hard-boiled
- Permanent marker
- 3/4-inch round white adhesive labels
- 1-inch-wide water-bottle lids
- Small rubber bands
- White glue or glue gun
- Flexible straws
- Self-adhesive foam
- Small clear glasses or bowls (optional)
- Small pitcher (optional)
- For each snorkeler, dye the bottom third of an egg, then let it dry.
- Draw eyes on a label and adhere it to a water-bottle lid. Slip the rubber band around the egg, about a quarter of the way down. Glue the lid over a rubber band.
- Trim a straw 1 inch above and 2 inches below the flexible section. Bend it into a snorkel shape and glue it in place.
- Cut foam flippers (trace our template ). Glue them to the egg, adhesive side down, and let dry. Stick the adhesive side to the display surface, or, if you like, to the inside of a small glass or bowl. With the pitcher, gently pour in dye until the egg is partly submerged.
Notes: White glue is kid-friendly but requires drying time; using a glue gun is an adult’s job.
- Plastic Easter eggs
- Tiny pom-poms
- Crafter’s Pick The Ultimate glue or hot glue
- Black permanent marker
- To make the felt features for your critters, you can download our template. We used Crafter’s Pick The Ultimate glue (hot glue also works well) to attach the pieces to the eggs and a black permanent marker to draw the face details.
- Pig: Curl a 4-inch piece of pipe cleaner around a pen to make the tail, then glue it in place.
- Mouse: For its tail, glue on a 3-inch length of yarn, knotted at the end.
- Skunk: First glue the rear half of the stripe to the tail, then glue the tail and front of the stripe to the body.
