Foil Easter Eggs



Here’s a fun activity that I did last Easter with Ashlyn.  I cut some egg shapes out of file folders and wrapped them in aluminium foil.  Then the girls painted them with acrylic paint.  I also let them use regular paint which worked fine but didn’t dry as nicely.  While the paint is still wet, use the other end of the paintbrush to scratch designs on the egg.  They ended up painting 11 eggs.  They had so much fun doing these.  I made a basket and then had them glue them on and put the eggs in it.  It turned out cute!

    Love this idea! I did this kind of thing with my 5th graders when I taught. I love the idea of making eggs. We might have to try this!
