This is just a silly way to make Easter Eggs. They are fun to make but could be a little fragile for younger fingers. Come to think of it this is more like a craft for parents not kids. But the kids can certainly help with ripping out newspaper and or book pages. I know my kids are pros especially when it comes to library books.
So next time you need to use an egg cut it in half gently with a sharp knife. This is so much easier then trying to blow out the egg through the hole. I don’t know if you have ever tried it but you need to be a great tuba player to be able to do it. Plus after about 2 eggs I am usually done for.
Put the egg back together and cover the split with wallpaper paste.
Use a piece of paper or magazine to seal it together.
Now the fun part is that you can hide whatever you want in there. Growing dinosaurs, jewels, hair pins even candy. Since we are using wallpaper paste on the outside I would use covered candy. You know just in case it will leak and someone will get poisoned. That would not be a fun holiday experience.
Just seal the little sucker right in there.
Take scraps of ripped books, magazines, tissue paper or newspaper
and glue them with wallpaper paste on the egg.
Continue on the other side and let dry.
These would be great at the kids table as place settings. All you need to do is write kids name on the egg and place in the egg holder by his/her seat. You can also place them in a basket in the middle of the table and when the kids are done eating tell them to break them. The surprise will be two fold. First they will actually be allowed to break things, like eggs at the kitchen table, on Easter… WOW… and then they will find a niftly toy inside that will hopefully keep them occupied for a few minutes.
