Dancin’ eggs

With Easter right around the corner kids will be doing loads of crafts at school and day care, and here’s one you can do at home!  I just came up with this and decided to call them Dancin’ Eggs.  The prices listed are from the A.C. Moore flyer, but any craft store near you will have great deals.  If you get the newspaper today for your coupons check out the A.C. Moore flyer and their coupons, or you can check it out online

You Will Need:

Easter baskets (starting at $1) or Plant pots (50% off this week)

Floral Styrofoam, either square or sphere

Easter basket grass (2 for $1)

X-Acto or carpenter’s knife

Newspaper and cardboard (to protect your surfaces)

Foam glue, rubber cement, or Elmer’s X-TREME school glue

Popsicle sticks or Wooden skewers

Foam board (starting at $1)

Markers or Acrylic paint (FolkArt paint, $0.77)

Glitter and pompoms (optional)

Line workspace with newspaper to protect from any messes then place a section of cardboard on top for cutting protection.  Cut the floral foam to fit the container of your choice.  For the eggs: either free hand, or trace an egg shaped cookie cutter, and cut eggs from the foam board.  Set the kids up with markers, paint, glitter, pompoms, and any other fun decorating supplies.  (Remember that markers and paint on foam can take a little extra time to dry).  Glue decorated eggs to popsicle sticks, place cut floral foam in the container, then stick completed eggs into the foam at varying heights.  Situate the Easter grass around the sticks, and voila, the eggs look like they are dancing across the grass!
