Spring Break has hit our house this week. All the boys are home and I am looking for fun, creative things to keep them occupied. Unfortunately today was a bit chilly and gloomy outside, and I am busy inside getting ready for the Queen Bee Market. So, today was polka dot Easter egg day. (I'm sure it is an official holiday in some country somewhere. Estonia perhaps?) I was really looking for something simple, not too messy, but fun results. This little project worked out perfectly.
We started with 2 blown out eggs, 2 pencils with erasers, craft glue, and plates of glitter (Yes, glitter. You gotta have some fun mess factor with boys.)
I even tried to make my own egg using little flower shapes cut out on my cricut. I made them into stickers with my xylon (double sided tape would work too), painted the tops of them with glue, stuck them on the egg, and then rolled the egg in glitter. Not quite the Martha Stewart finish I was looking for but, like I said, it was peaceful so that's a "good thing", as Martha would say. And now we have a little bling-bling to display on our mantle.
Now, only 6 days left of crafts to think of.... Happy polka dot Easter egg day everybody!
