My little ones would be fascinated if they caught them with plasticine eggs - Easter in a nest. To make homemade plasticine: flour, water, oil and dye (saffron substitute coloring, boiling water spinach or beet, blue food dyes for confectionery)

Children love to play with soap and water, so this activity for children will love them. Making the chick is very simple, but with this technique they can also make colorful Easter eggs in felted wool, a very easy craftsmanship that even the youngest ones can do.

you want to make Easter eggs follow the step by step but do not decorate the egg.

Materials:

  • 1 small polyester ball
  • Felt wool yellow
  • Felt scraps in red, orange and yellow colors
  • Soap
  • Scissors
  • black beads

Step by step:

Begin by squeezing the poliespan ball to give it the shape of a egg. Then place the egg on a piece of yellow felt wool.

Wrap the egg in the felt.

Put it under the water tap and wet it well, then soapy your hands and start spinning the ball between your hands.

Rub the soapy ball a few minutes without wetting it any more. Do this until the water dries and the wool starts to get hard. You have to do it for about 10 minutes.

This way you can make a Felt Easter egg.

If you want to continue and make the chick, yellow felt the wings, in felt orange the legs and in red felt the piquito

In this way you have a wool chick to decorate for Easter.
