See how easy and fun it is to decorate the inside of an Easter egg. Lots of odds and ends can be used to make these eggs. With a little help from an adult or teen to do the snipping, children can make unique creations as an extra-special Easter treat.
With a strong needle or a pushpin, poke a hole in the end of a raw egg. Use small scissors to snip a hole into the egg—about as large as a nickel. Empty the contents of the egg, rinse it and allow to dry.
To strengthen the hole and tidy it up a bit, glue a round or two of yarn or rick-rack around the edge of the hole.
Tip: The flower background and the bunnies in the sample egg are cutouts from the Easter Egg Holders craft project.
Now the rest is up to the imagination! Make the inside of the egg into a scene using tiny plastic animals or tiny cutouts stuck into some fun tack or floral clay in the bottom of the egg. Use bits of cotton and Easter grass glued inside the egg to enhance your scene.
Tip: You may find it easier to stick cutouts into the clay if they are first glued to cardstock and/or broken toothpick ends.
Tip: For a nice look, add rick-rack around the hole and more around the egg's middle. The flower cutouts inside this egg were made with tiny rubber stamps.
The outside of the egg can be left plain or be decorated with stickers or markers. To display the egg, make a holder by gluing a 6" by ¼" strip of paper into a ring; or, make one of Aunt Annie's Easter Egg Holders.
That's it! Your peek-a-boo Easter
egg is complete!
