Easter Egg Garland

Published March 22, 2012 by MisMandie

What you will need:

  • Plastic Easter Eggs
  • Ribbon or Yarn

What to do:

  • First cut a length of ribbon or yarn to the length you want you finished project to be
  • Now decide on your color order and how you want them to hang. (all the same height or staggered)
  • Cut a piece to double the height you want for each egg
  • Run the strings through the holes in the top of your eggs so that you have 2 ends at the top
  • Now tie each egg to the long ribbon and space them how you like then hang.

 

Easter Egg Doll Umbrella

Published February 29, 2012 by MisMandie

What you will need:

  • Bottom 1/2 of a Plastic Easter Egg (left over from the egg shell game)
  • 1 Pipe Cleaner
  • Hot Glue Gun

What to Do;

Fold your pipe cleaner in 1/2 and twist them around each other to add stability.  When you get to the ends bend them in so that they overlap and make a flat surface. (see photo) Add a generous dollop of hot glue to the inside center of the egg shell and push in the pipe cleaner flattened side down.  Now just curl the handle end to make a J shape or twist around the hand of your dolls.  Once it is cool you are ready to play!

Easter Egg Shell Game

Published February 28, 2012 by MisMandie

What you will need:

  • 3 Plastic Easter Eggs (not see through!)
  • 1 “Hidden Item” (Anything that will fit in the shell…Ball, PomPom, Hair Clip, Scrapbook¬†Embellishments¬†(what I used), etc)
  • Scissors

What To Do:

Simply cut apart the connector between the top and bottom of your egg shell (or even better use ones that your little one broke which is what gave me this idea).  You will only need the top 1/2 of each egg.

To play have your child watch as you place an object under 1 egg then shuffle them around (a lot of a little depending on age and ability)  and see if they can follow it and pick the right egg.

Please beware of choking hazards depending on the age and maturity of your child! 

Easter Egg Matching Game

Published February 24, 2012 by MisMandie

What you will Need:

  • 6 Plastic Easter Eggs
  • 1 Empty Egg Carton (I cut the top off mine)
  • 2 each of 3 different items to fill
Ideas for Fillers:
  • Scrap book¬†embellishments (What I used)
  • Different colored pompoms
  • Candies
  • Hair ties
  • Small toys
  • Fruit Loops
  • Stickers
  • Temporary¬†Tattoos
In other words, Just about anything that will fit in the eggs!  Just make sure you they are different enough that your kiddo knows the difference and that there are 2 of each kind.  Switch them out for a fun suprise every so often to keep it interesting for your little one!
As they improve their skills try getting more eggs and and a 2 1/2 dozen pack of eggs (they sell them at Sam’s club) If you don’t use enough eggs to go through them fast enough, maybe share with relatives and or friends ūüôā

I won’t bore you with step by step instructions on this one since it is as obvious as it looks ūüôā ¬†Have Fun!

Please beware of choking hazards depending on the age and maturity of your child! 

(and since I STILL have tons of these eggs and the little trinkets left expect to see more ways to use them soon!)

Easter Egg Counting Game

Published February 13, 2012 by MisMandie

Very Simple Game to make for your little ones in just minuets! You can fill your eggs with any objects that will interest your kids and fit in the eggs. (Mine is obsessed with princesses right now!) I found these in the scrapbook section of the dollar store a while back for a party (we were decorating foam crowns) and had a bunch leftover!  You can change them out too to keep it interesting for them.

Please beware of choking hazards depending on the age and maturity of your child!
