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.
