I wanted to do something a little different with our Easter eggs this year. I thought about patterned eggs, stickered eggs, and painted eggs, but as someone with a massive supply of paper scraps, confetti eggs was a no-brainer.
It's really easy - just a bit time-consuming. I think this project is more about finger dexterity than it is age, so it's up to you if you think your child is old enough to give it a try. You will need:
- hard boiled eggs
- a hole puncher
- colored papers or card stock
- craft glue (I used my trusty Martha Stewart ball-point glue pen, but any craft glue with a tip applicator should work)
Punch confetti circles from your papers.
Next, dab a dot of glue on the egg, and place a confetti circle on top. Do this one at a time, alternating glue-confetti-glue-confetti.
Let eggs dry in the egg carton overnight. Do not leave eggs for too long if you're planning to eat them (I know you know this - I just had to say it!). Refrigerate as soon as they're decorated, and don't take them out of the refrigerator until you're ready to decorate them.
There are so many possibilities for this:
- close-set confetti
- staggered confetti
- monochrome confetti
- rainbow confetti
- pastel confetti
- glittered confetti
- patterned paper confetti
- spell out words with confetti, or make shapes, symbols, or patterns with the confetti
Are you decorating eggs this year? How will you be doing it?
