Are you as tired as I am of modern easter egg decorating? No, I mean coloring them is still
cool; the thing I don't
get is putting stickers on them and calling it creative. Huh? That's just wrong. Plus, the sticker is probably made in China, and who knows what's in that adhesive? Lead? Anti-freeze?
Anyhow, I got this great tip from Kodak tips and projects
. The kiddos can still get their sticker fix -- and be creative and process-oriented at the same time. Hey, that's three birds with one stone! For this decorating project, you'll need:
Let's get started!
- Eggs (of course!)
- Paint brush
- Decoupage glue
- Regular printer paper (not photo)
- Photos (Let your child get creative here)
- Let your child go wild with the digital camera.
- Print the pictures on printer paper.
- Center the egg on the photo.
- Trace around (rather, a-oval) it and cut it out.
- Make snips around the edges so it will conform to the shape of the egg.
- Brush glue onto the egg and smooth the photo onto it.
- Apply a thin protective coat of glue over the photo.
- Get pumped up to go a-huntin'!
