I thought we could re-use them and be kind to the Earth and my budget while making a fun
and possibly "keepsake" quality Easter decoration.
To make these you will need
- white glue (we used about a cup of Elmer's but you can use less)
- 2 cups of water (separate)
- paint brushes
- scrap paper
- plastic eggs
- covering for your work surface (optional)
First, I gave the girls scrap paper to decorate with crayons.While they were coloring,
I mixed one cup of the water with one cup of the glue in a glass jar.(the other cup of water was to keep our brushes clean)Once the girls colored the paper, they cut them into small strips of varying sizes.
I liked them at 1 or 2 inches long and 1/4 inch wide. We did not measure it,
I just let them cut the paper up.We used a paint brush to apply a layer of glue on the plastic egg, then added a strip of paper at a time, covering it with more glue as we went on. We let them dry and then covered with another layer of glue.
