Sparkly Shiny Eggs

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:

You need:

  • eggs (boiled or blown)
  • tissue paper cut into little pieces
  • scissors
  • mod podge
  • foam brushes or paint brushes
  • glitter
  • wax paper (for drying)

Main Supplies

How to:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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)
  4. Place a piece of tissue paper on top of the mod podge. Brush another coat of mod podge on top of the tissue paper.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until egg is covered in colorful tissue paper.
  6. Sprinkle with glitter.
  7. Let dry on piece of wax paper. It will take a few hours.

And voila! They look shiny and gorgeous. Happy Eggmaking!
