Blås ut et egg. Ta litt lim på eggeskallet (litt etter litt) og surr garn rundt. 

Fest en tråd i en avbrukket binders, fyrstikk el.l. som du stikker ned i egget for å henge det opp.

Fargede egg

For å oppnå den mørkeste fargen koker du eggene i 10 minutter sammen med overskåren løk. Avkjøl i kokevannet. 
For å oppnå litt lysere farge, koker du også i 10 minutter, men tar de opp av kokevannet med en gang.

For å får turkise egg, koker du disse sammen med et kvart rødkålhode i 10 minutter og lar eggene avkjøle i kokevannet.

Ønsker du grønne egg? Da legger du spinatblader i vannet. Mørke brune; bruk kaffe. Kraftig gul; gurkemeie. Blålilla; blåbær.

Eller du kan rett og slett bruke konditorfarger.

Egg Carton Chicks



Empty egg carton
Watercolor brush
Yellow tempera paint

Time needed: Under 1 Hour
1. To make each chick, use the scissors to cut a single egg cup from the egg carton for a body. Trim along the top edge, keeping the sides of the cup as tall as possible.

2. With a colored marker, outline a chick's head and neck on the underside of the carton top. (Use the molded portion of cardboard that separates the eggs.) Cut out the head and glue the base of the neck to the inside of the body.

3. For the chick's wings, cut a second egg cup from the carton, this time trimming the sides about 1/2 inch from the bottom. Then, cut the cup into halves. Holding the half cups with the bottoms up, fit them onto the sides of the chick's body and glue them into position.

4. Once the glue dries, brush on a coat of the yellow tempera paint. Allow the paint to dry thoroughly. Next, use colored markers to tint the beak orange and draw on eyes.

5. Finally, cut a pair of feet from carton scraps and color them orange. Glue the feet onto the bottom of the body, and the chick is ready to fill with Easter candy.

Clear 2-liter soda bottle
Small flowerpot
Potting soil
Craft stick marker

Time needed: Under 1 Hour
1. Cut the top from a clear 2-liter soda bottle.

2. Find a flowerpot that fits inside the dome. Fill the pot with potting soil, then plant the seeds according to the packet directions.

Lasting Lilies



White card stock
Green card stock
Tacky glue
Acrylic paint
Plastic tri-beads
20-gauge florists' stem wire
Round wooden bead
Floral tape
Large marker

Time needed: About 1 to 2 Hours
1. Cut six 7-inch petals (as shown) from white card stock and two 8-inch leaves from green card stock. Fold all 8 pieces in half lengthwise.

2. Use tacky glue to glue together the bases of 3 petals, creating a ring with a hole (about 1/2 inch across) in the center. Repeat with the remaining petals to create a slightly tighter ring.

3. Give your lily some distinctive speckles by splattering the leaves with an old toothbrush dipped in diluted acrylic paint (a great job for kids). Allow the glue and the paint to dry.

4. To make a trio of stamens, slip 3 plastic tri-beads onto the ends of three 18-inch lengths of 20-gauge florists' stem wire and bend the tips to secure the beads in place. Feed the opposite wire ends through a round wooden bead, then glue the bead in place about 2 inches below the tri-beads.

5. Feed the wires through the narrower ring of petals followed by the wider ring, offsetting the petals slightly. Glue the petals together and to the bead and let the glue dry.

6. Wrap a 2-foot section of floral tape around the base of the lily several times to secure it to the wires, stretching the tape while you wrap to help it stick. Continue wrapping the tape along the length of the wires, adding the leaves partway down. Finally, gently roll the petals over a large marker to curl the tips.


Handprint Lilies



White card stock
Green card stock
Hole punch
Green plastic straw
Yellow pipe cleaner

Time needed: Under 1 Hour
1. Have your child trace his hand onto a piece of white card stock (regular paper works too but isn't as durable) and cut out the shape. Cut two double leaves from green card stock and punch holes in the centers where the leaves meet, as shown.

2. Curl the paper fingers and leaves by wrapping them around a pencil.

3. Wrap the hand around the top of a green plastic straw and secure it with tape. Slide the leaves onto the straw and tape them in place. For the flower's stamen, fold half of a yellow pipe cleaner in half and curl down the ends. Insert the folded end in the straw.


Shoelace Bunnies



Craft foam in two colors
Decorative-edge scissors
Regular scissors
Craft glue
Googly eyes
Jingle bells

Time needed: Under 1 Hour
1. On the craft foam, draw the shape of a bunny's face with a light pencil line. It should be about 3 inches wide and 5 inches high.

2. Cut it out using decorative-edge scissors.

3. Trace and cut out a second, matching face.

4. On each face, glue on a pair of googly eyes.

5. From a contrasting color of craft foam, cut out two shapes for the insides of the ears and glue them in place.

6. In the middle of each face, use regular scissors to cut two slits large enough to accommodate your child's shoelace.

7. Thread a jingle bell into the center of each lace, then through the slits so the ends come out the back of the bunny's head.

8. To make the cheeks, glue on the pom-poms just below the jingle bell nose.

Eggshell Plant Pots

Make and decorate tiny eggshell plant pots for Easter. Then watch your plants grow.

Supplies needed:
  • Eggshells
  • Potting soil
  • Grass seeds (they germinate in a few weeks) or bean seeds (they germinate in a few days)
  • Tempera paint or Markers
  • Hot glue or white glue
  • A small square of cardboard or a small piece of a pipe cleaner.
Clean eggshells and dry them gently.

To give the tiny plant pot a solid base, glue a small square of cardboard to the bottom of the eggshell (or use a small piece of pipecleaner twisted into a circle ). If using white glue, let it set for a few hours; hot glue will set in a few minutes.

Using tempera paint or markers, decorate the eggshells. Let the paint dry.
Put potting soil in the eggshells (fill a little over half way). Add many grass seeds or two bean seeds (in case one doesn't germinate). The grass seeds take a few weeks to germinate, but bean seeds will sprout in just a few days.

Cover the seeds with a little bit of soil, and sprinkle lightly with water.

When the seeds sprout, put the tiny plant pot in a sunny spot and enjoy.

Eggshell or Egg Carton Tulips

Make a bouquet of delicate eggshell tulips for Easter, using eggshells (or foam egg cartons sections) and pipe cleaners. Younger children will find it easier to use the egg carton sections

Supplies needed:
  • Eggshells (or foam egg cartons sections)
  • Green pipe cleaners
  • Tempera paint and markers
  • Hot glue or white glue

Clean eggshell halves and dry them gently. Or, for an easier craft with more durable flowers, use foam egg carton sections. Cut the cartons sections to look like a tulip.

Using tempera paint, decorate the shells to look like tulips. Let the paint dry overnight. When the paint is completely dry, add details to the tulips using markers.

Twirl one end of a green pipe cleaner into a spiral shape (this will be glued onto the base of the tulip).
Glue the spiral to the tulip (if using white glue, let it set for a few hours).

Duck Paper Plate Craft

This easy-to-make duck is a cute craft that is made from a single paper plate and construction paper.

Supplies needed:

  • Paper plate
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Stapler
  • A pencil
  • Yellow and orange construction paper or oak tag
  • Crayons, paint or markers
  • Googly eyes (optional)
Trace your hands on yellow construction paper, then cut the hands out. If you don't have yellow construction paper, use stiff white paper, then paint it yellow (or use markers).
Fold a paper plate in half.

Paint it yellow and let it dry

Staple the hands near the fold on one end - these will be the tail feathers.
Using yellow construction paper or oaktag, cut out a circle (about 3 inches across or a little bigger) -- this will be the duck's head.

Using orange construction paper or oaktag, cut out an elongated oval with one end cut off -- this will be the duck's bill. Fold the end of the beak over, making a small tab (this is where you will put the glue).

Glue the bill onto the circle (put the glue on the small tab that will be folded under the bill). Draw eyes above the bill (or glue on small googly eyes).

Staple the head to the paper plate (near the fold line, opposite the tail feathers).

Using orange construction paper or oaktag, cut out the duck's feet - they should be connected by a short strip of paper. To draw each foot, start with an oval, then draw a zigzag on one end.

Fold the paper where the feet meet the strip of paper.

Staple each foot to the bottom of one side of the paper plate, right inside the fold line of the foot.

You now have a cute duckie that will stand up.

Plastic Egg Bunny

Make cute Easter bunnies from a plastic egg, pom-poms and fun foam (or construction paper). You can even hide some Easter candy inside your bunny for a special Easter treat.

Supplies needed:
  • Plastic easter egg
  • 2 medium or large white pompoms
  • 1 small pink pompom
  • 2 sheets of fun foam or construction paper (white and pink)
  • Pipe cleaners for whiskers (optional)
  • Hot glue
  • Scissors
  • 2 googly eyes (the bigger the better)

Cut two large white bunny ears that will go with your plastic egg. Cut two smaller pink ears that will fit inside the white ears. Glue the smaller pink piece inside the larger white piece, with the bottoms lined up. Repeat for other ear.
Glue the ears to the top of the small end of the egg, spacing them about 1/2" to 1" apart.
Glue the two white pompoms on the front of the egg just above where the egg opens up (these will be the chubby cheeks). Glue the pompoms together on the egg, then glue the pink pompom on the center, on top of the white pompoms, smushing it a little in between and up against the plastic egg.
Glue on the eyes; they look better if they are a bit over-sized. Put candy inside your bunny for a special treat.
