We decided to get our entry's ready for the decorated egg competition, held at our local Easter party. I picked up some polystyrene eggs from a local stationary shop, however they are available from most craft shops & have been seen in the £ shops.
We used the left over tissue paper from our Easter Egg Collages, to decorate them. First we covered the egg in white glue then added tissue & more glue until the egg was all covered. I did have to help them at the end by putting on some more glue to stick all the tissue down. They took approximately a day to dry (I turned them 1/2 way through), we dried these on a plastic bag so they wouldn't stick.
We made some really cute egg huggers using free printables from:
- Bunny Egg Hugger - Skip to my lou
- Chick Egg Hugger - Pixel Occasions (Link to free b/w printable is at the bottom of the post)
I printed them on to cream/white card & cut them out for the boys. They then coloured them in & added eyes (always a hit). I stapled them together for the boys & we added some shredded tissue & our dry egg.
