Easter Egg Sun-catchers
|Easter Egg Sun-catcher|
Painters Tape (or other heavy duty tape)
Double-Sided Tape (Just in case you need to seal the eggs better)
Place the contact paper on the table sticky side up using painter’s tape to keep it on the table. Add the confetti and Easter grass to stick onto the contact paper. Add it to your heart's content and throw it around all over. Seal it by adding a second sheet on contact paper on the top. Cut into an egg shape or several egg shapes. It is possibly that you may need to extra seal with double-sided tape in case the confetti is too thick. Hang and enjoy!

|Shaving Cream Egg|
A surface to use, tray covered table, etc
Cardstock or Construction Paper
Acrylic Paints (Food Coloring gel works best)
Something to stir the paint (Spoon, toothpick, paintbrush)
Spray out enough shaving cream so that the surface area is larger than your paper. Spread it around to make the surface smooth. Squirt paint or dye onto the shaving cream. Make shapes, or swirls or zigzags in the color. Cut the paper into shapes (in this case Easter shapes). Press the paper down onto the colored shaving cream and let it sit for a few seconds. Remove the paper and let it sit shaving cream side up for a few minutes to soak in the color. gently squeegee the shaving cream off of the paper which will leave the color behind. Allow to dry before hanging or using as a card.
Ombre Dyed Eggs
Hard Boiled Eggs
Place eggs into cups or containers that will allow them to sit upright. Add enough warm water to cover about a quarter of the egg. Add enough food coloring for it the color to show darkly in the water. Let sit 10 minutes and then add enough water so that the eggs are now half covered. Let sit for another 10 minutes and cover up to the 3/4 mark. Sit for another 10 minutes and cover completely. After 5 minutes of total immersion you can remove to dry. *Keep in mind that 40 additional minutes in warm water may cook the egg yolk a bit more.
