Crafty Egg Time




If you are looking for a quick and simple Easter craft to do with the kids this weekend then I have the perfect thing for you ‘Metallic Easter Eggs’. You can pick up the little kits in most crafty shops; I actually picked mine up from a very budget super market for a couple of pounds.

What you will need
 Eggs (always free range)
 Dyes
Protective gloves
Newspaper
Silver metallic paper


Firstly you will need to boil your eggs for 10 minutes until they are hard boiled

While your eggs are boiling fill a cup with boiling water and put your 3 dyes in the hot water so they can become soft

Remove eggs one by one from boiling water, pat dry.

Cut the end off one dye and put 15 drops in your hand, then roll the egg in the dye until it is completely covered

Make sure the egg is still sticky and then cover it in the silver paper, use a spoon to press the paper down so it sticks on the egg.

Repeat this process with the remaining colours and eggs.

Something else that was interesting was after my youngest removed the shell from two eggs he discovered they actually looked like dinosaur eggs which he found a lot of fun!!





I also could not resist creating this little guy, I saw a similar thing on a blog yesterday and I just had to give it ago, so go on get crafty for Easter!!
