Kids love glitter so why not use this art material to make fancy Easter Eggs?

What You Need:
What You Do:
  1. Paint the eggs (or leave plain).
  2. Allow to dry.
  3. Roll egg in craft glue. Or, paint glue on the egg using an old paintbrush.
  4. While glue is still wet, roll egg in glitter.


  5. Allow to dry

As an alternative, you can paint glitter onto the egg using glitter glue or shimmer glaze (try Elmer's Shimmer Glaze). We used tissue paper as well.

Tip: Drying eggs in egg cups or egg cartons works well.
Tip: Do NOT eat your painted eggs!
