- 6 eggs
- pencil, small paint brush, acrylic pain in different colours, black felt tip pen and glitter pens
Use these eggs instead of place cards around your Easter lunch table, or hide them in the garden for a fun Easter-egg hunt.
Using a pencil, draw an oval outline onto each egg, covering one third of the surface area. Use an artist’s brush to paint outside the pencil border in the paint colour of your choice.
Allow the egg to dry by balancing it on an eggcup or in an egg box.
Once dry, use the felt-tip pen to write a name or message in the unpainted area.
Dot the border of the oval using one or more glitter pens.
Repeat with the remaining eggs.
Allow the eggs to dry overnight, facing upwards.
