Washi Tape and paper mache eggs...

4 years ago


Need some fun crafty projects to keep the kiddos busy this week?  Well, maybe not, but I thought I'd share just the same because we had a ton of fun making these Easter decorations.

Last week, moments before illness reared its ugly head, we painted some paper mache eggs.  IMG_0836Nothing special, just some paper mache eggs from the craft store and washable paints... IMG_0840

IMG_0850Violet and I painted paper mache eggs once before.  Henry was still under one and it was a fun project for she and I to do together while he was napping.  But, this year, after hearing this story Henry was eager to paint some of his own. IMG_0857

This turned out to be loads of fun for kids and adults alike. IMG_1079
