Allergy Friendly "Egg" Decorating
So, off to Michael's we went, armed with coupons, time, and an open mind. It was kind of like a scavenger hunt - who can find the best feaux eggs for decorating? We began scouring the aisle of "eggs". Our hunt ended when we found a bag of 6 paper mache eggs. Oh, the things we could do with these! Armed with our "eggs" and goodies from our craft closet, we were ready to decorate.
Supplies: 6 paper mache eggs, stickers (paper not plastic), pastel paint, glue, paint brushes, pastel colored tissue paper, rhinestone stickers, colors, sequins, glitter, scissors, patience, imagination
Ideas for decorating:
Stickers Before painting or after painting, cover the eggs with stickers. We found that small, paper stickers worked best. The plastic stickers didn't want to stick on the paper mache and the large stickers puckered. (ages 1 - 6 years old)
