Easter Egg Design Kits

IMG_3202

My kids have been begging to dye Easter eggs since the minute Valentine's day was over. I came up with this little activity so they could make Easter eggs whenever they want, minus the mess. I made some mini flannel boards for them. You can get the instructions here. But you could easily do this project without the board. One night while I got caught up on my favorite TV shows I cut a bunch of eggs, stripes, zig zags and polka dots out of felt.

The kids woke up the next morning and got right to work. You can design your own eggs, or play games with them. (Count the polka dots; now make one with a face; only use white stripes, etc.) Or you can create an egg that everyone needs to replicate…which will help them learn to recognize and follow a pattern. After seeing what my kids came up with, I've decided to add some google eyes and some ribbon to the kits. And perhaps a mustache or two. For the extra-ambitious among us, think about updating the kits for the seasons–pumpkin and snowman decorating, etc.
