Easter always brings on the thought of traditional dyed eggs and there are quite a few ways to do some artistic stuff with them. One year the grand kids and I made egg place markers for our Easter Dinner.
They were fun and simple to do and the kids enjoyed expressing their artistic side by designing their eggs to represent themselves and others that would be joining them at the dinner. It was also a way of incorporating them into planning the dinner and being a part of the decoration process.
Eggs- hard boiled or blown out.
Egg dye (optional)
Prepare eggs, clean and dry. If you want to dye them then do this step first.
After they have dried distribute eggs and let children decide what dinner guest they will recreate or assign the guests to each child.
Set out decorations and suggest that the children use the closet color of yarn for the guests hair they are designing the egg to represent.
Let them enjoy decorating the way they choose and provide accessory items that a child may associate with the individual such as necklaces, earrings, hats, ect.
Cut strips of construction paper and form into ring. Write name of guest on strip and tape to form a circle for the egg to rest.
Set the eggs at the plates of the guests.
