don’t want to use an actual egg for the traditional Easter-egg-painting part of the festivities, here’s an easy to do Easter craft that doesn’t require much in terms of materials.
- Some coloured kite paper strips
- A blown up balloon
Use Fevicol to cover your balloon with strips of paper slightly overlapping each other. Let this layer dry a little before you go ahead and cover with one more layer. You have to make at least five layers.
Let dry overnight or in strong direct sunlight for a few hours. Pop the balloon with a needle. Your paper mache Easter egg is ready to be painted and decorated!
I like the multicoloured effect of the coloured strips so I am just going to put a coat of varnish and gift it to my nephew. You can also choose to do the layers with newspaper strips and then use acrylic paints to decorate the egg.
