This Easter craft was not planned at all but sometimes beautiful things happen on hard days. This happened when my daughter refused to nap on a day I needed to pack for a trip , I just wanted her to sleep but she had other plans. Instead of trying and trying to get her to sleep and getting more and more frustrated I decided we’d play. Play we did. I had no plans on turning it into a craft but I am so glad we did because every time we pass the window where these eggs are with my daughter she claps and points with pride.
- Gather your materials. So my plan was just to do an Easter sticky table so I grabbed some confetti and Easter grass, contact paper and painter’s tape.
- I popped the contact paper on the table sticky side up using painter’s tape to keep it on the table. Added the confetti and Easter grass to stick on. My son was mildly interested but she was in love.
- She poured and poured and asked for more.
- Picked it up and let it drop.
- All over the table and the floor.
- It was a blast. But to say it was messy would be an understatement . I confined the mess by sealing the confetti under a 2nd layer of contact paper.
- Then cut them into egg shapes. Aren’t they pretty??
- I used a little double stick tape to make sure that the paper was stuck together, because there were so many layers of confetti that the contact paper didn’t stick. The double stick tape did the trick and I put them up in the window. Even in the dark gloomy rain these brightened up our playroom!
She never did nap but wow did we have fun!
