Crafting with styrofoam eggs

We seem to have a plethora of styofoam eggs this year, I obviously keep buying them when I see them and promptly forget about them. This year they are all in an Easter basket to remind us to get crafting.

I bought a pack of eye and moustache stickers from Tiger which I thought would be perfect for some quick crafting. The 4 year old had fun choosing his favourites and sticking them on the eggs to create some crazy faces.

When he had finished we displayed some of the eggs in vintage egg cups.

I wonder what other ways we can come up with to decorate them.

Potato masher egg print

Have you ever noticed how a potato masher is egg shaped? You know what that means? It’s perfect for covering in paint and making egg shapes for an Easter decoration!

My son had so much fun with this craft. He kept saying “potato masher” over and over again, I don’t think he could quite believe what he was being allowed to do :)

I set him up with a selection of paints, a paintbrush, paper and potato masher.

He covered the end of the masher with paint then pressed it gently on the paper.

He printed lots of eggs which we then left to dry before cutting them out. We wanted to make the printed eggs into a banner so found some bakers twine and wooden pegs and assembled it all.

Voila! An egg-cellent Easter banner.

Handprint shamrock for St Patrick’s Day

We had a great crafting session this morning whilst Little Sis was at nursery. Her brother was happy to churn out painting after painting and quickly covered the table with his pictures. Today we finished off our hand print shamrock – perfect for celebrating St Patrick’s Day!
