Yesterday I went to a friend’s house for an Easter dinner. Before we ate, I sat down with all of the kids and taught them how to make Sparkly Shiny Easter Eggs. They’re really easy. These ones were made by kids ages 3-11 (although the 3 yr old definitely needed help from daddy). Here’s how you do it:
- eggs (boiled or blown)
- tissue paper cut into little pieces
- mod podge
- foam brushes or paint brushes
- wax paper (for drying)
- Either boil or blow the yolk out of the eggs. I have tried doing both. Boiling is definitely easier and less messy but the only downside is that they stink after a while and have to be thrown away. The blown eggs can last forever. With this group of kids I blew out the yolk myself in advance. There are many tutorials online on how to do this.
- If you have more than one child, have each child write their name on a piece of wax paper. This is where they will dry their egg when they’re done.
- Using a foam or paint brush, brush a coat of mod podge onto the egg. (just in a small area, not all over the entire egg, just yet)
- Place a piece of tissue paper on top of the mod podge. Brush another coat of mod podge on top of the tissue paper.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 until egg is covered in colorful tissue paper.
- Sprinkle with glitter.
- Let dry on piece of wax paper. It will take a few hours.
And voila! They look shiny and gorgeous. Happy Eggmaking!
