Easter Egg Place Cards
- 1 egg for each guest expected
- Cardboard stand – I make them out of toilet paper rolls
- Paint – Kids – pastel colors
- Sponge or paint brush
- White crayon
- Eater egg dye kit – made according to kit directions
- Work with the kids to write (in Crayon) the name on each guest on cooled eggs
- Drop each egg into dye until the desired color tint
- Remove eggs and allow to dry completely
- Take Toilet paper rolls and cut into 3 pieces each.
- Paint the paper rolls with pastel colors
- After all is completely dried, place an egg in each holder to promptly display seating arrangements
- (If kept cool until ready to seat, eggs will be edible)
- Sugar, glitter or sand (I prefer sand)
- Mix grainy substance (sugar, glitter) in paint, being sure not to add so much that it is too thick to sponge on.
- Using sponge apply in dabs over entire egg. The texture in the sponge will create another dynamic in the eggs.
- Allow to dry completely
- You can add a clear coat for a super shiny look or
- You can allow to dry naturally.
- In ordered to achieve the desired texture results, you may need to repeat the process. Don’t worry its only added fun to making special eggs.
- (If allowing to dry naturally and then cooling, Egg will be edible)
- Puff paint, or paint in squirt bottles, nail polish
- Line eggs up side by side
- Squirt paint across eggs in quick and thin strokes
- Allow to completely dry before rolling to an unpainted surface and repeat process until egg is completely covered.
- Paint may over lap other areas, this add character
- Once completely dry, you may wish to coat in clear nail polish
- The splatter egg is a real hit with kids as they can get completely messy on purpose.
- (Not edible)
There is no one way to decorate your Easter eggs. With a little creativity and very little supplies, you can made unique and custom eggs for your guests to enjoy. The kids will happily showcase their master pieces to anyone who enters. Doing custom decorations with the kids is a fantastic way to spend your holiday time.
