With spring finally here, and Easter and Passover right around the corner, there are lots of ways to celebrate the season with crafts and egg decorating. Some of the easiest and festive kids crafts can be found on the RED TED ART sight. There are 40 Easter crafts using eggs, pompom balls, and readily available materials. http://www.redtedart.com
When I was a kid, we died eggs by dipping them into cups of colored water. You can still do that, but now there are many other ways to decorate eggs for the holiday. You can use non-toxic water color paints to create works of art. Try paint daubers to make dots, Crayola or other non-toxic markers to draw designs. The Red TED sight has many other ideas for egg decorating. If you wish to try the Polish art of PISANKY egg dying, you can order your own kit from: http://www.chinaberry.com
Here’s a unique way to give out chocolate treats for the holiday: Create egg-shaped baskets out of balloons and dazzle family and friends with your talent. Check out the how-tos for MAGIC BALLOON TREATS at: http://www.thewhoot.com.au
Happy Easter and Happy crafting!
