Easter Egg Mobile
This wonderful project to do with kids this Easter comes to us from the ever-creative Mama King of 4 Crazy Kings. Have the kids decorate egg shapes cut from clear contact paper to create Easter mobiles that let the sun shine through. Use whatever collage materials you have on hand such as sequins, glitter, paint and more.
- 2 identical egg shaped paper templates
- Clear Contact/Shelf Paper
- Hole Punch
- Collage Materials (tissue, sequins, ribbon, feathers, glitter...)
Tip: before starting any project with small children make sure your materials are set up. It helps the flow of the project and stops impatience on the child's part and frustration on your part.
Cut out 2 egg shaped templates and tape one to work surface. I use an old drawing board so I can move it for snack, lunch or whatever comes up. The egg guide will help your child visualize where to put the materials. Cut out two rectangles slightly larger than your egg template. Peel off backing of one (set aside second rectangle) and lay sticky side up over egg template. Tape down on each end so it doesn't slide around. Start adding all your collage material -- paying attention to your egg guide. You want a good seal around the edges so try to keep collage materials inside of egg. When your done -- peel off backing of second piece of sticky paper -- place on top of collage and smooth with your hands. You can either take a permanent marker and outline the egg shape underneath or use the second egg template as a guide to cut out egg. I held it in place with my thumb and cut around it to ensure I wouldn't get any marker edging on my egg. Untape plastic sticky paper collage. Leave egg template taped to board for the next collage egg. Cut out egg. Repeat as many times as desired. You may want to do one large egg with several tiny eggs dangling from it...it is up to you and your imagination!
