Easter is just around the corner and I am so excited that my littlest guy is able to really enjoy it this year! My son Jacob has colored eggs before but this was Carters first time and he just had a blast! We used the Tie-Dye kit from PAAS and oh my goodness is it so much fun! My little guys loved watching the dye bubble in the matching colored cups.
The Tie-Dye kit was really easy to use and my 4 year old thought it was really neat. The kit comes with an egg mold, dye, dropper and two white pieces of fabric. You poke holes in the designated spots on the egg mold, wrap your egg in the damp white fabric and place it in the mold. My Jacob is very specific when crafting, so getting to use a little dropper to color the egg was just the type of crafting he likes. I think his favorite part was taking the white fabric off of the egg to see what he created! Every egg was different and so colorful!
We decided to take our Easter egg creating up a notch and made them into colorful sea creatures: a starfish and a fish.
Sea Friendly Tie Dye Easter Eggs
Colored Easter Eggs
Glue two googley eyes to each egg.
Cut out either a starfish shaped star or two fins and a fish tail. Glue to your egg. So Simple.
You may have to help your little ones cut out the scrapbooking paper but most kids will be able to handle glueing on the scrapbooking paper pieces. This is a project the whole family can enjoy.
Jacob was so proud of his Easter egg decorating skills 🙂
Capturing the excitement and awe of coloring eggs in little ones is just so fun!
