Aluminum Foil Easter Eggs

This craft can be done by the smallest of crafters. Involve your young children in this fun Easter egg craft that can be hung for decoration, used as a gift note card, or displayed on your refrigerator.

Approximate Time:

Supplies:

  • thin cardboard
  • aluminum foil
  • paint (various bright Easter colors)
  • paint brushes
    Ad
  • Q-tips
  • tape

Instructions:

  1. Cut out an egg shape from a piece of thin cardboard.
  2. Cover the cardboard with aluminum foil. I just made the front look nice and used tape on the back to hold it in place.
  3. li>Paint the front side of the egg.

  4. Use a Q-tip to make a design. Wherever the Q-tip is rubbed, the paint will be removed exposing the aluminum foil and leaving your Easter egg design.

Display on the refrigerator or make these note cards for gifts by attaching a paper egg shape (same size) to the back and writing a message. For example, "Happy Easter, 2010! Love, (your name)."

Hang many of these from your ceiling for an Easter feel in your house. Attach a piece of string or fishing line to the back of the egg. Cover with another same size egg shape cut from paper to make the back look more attractive. Color or leave plain. Or, you could just put two together back to back.

Enjoy.
