This Marbleized Egg Garland is a great Easter craft for kids of all ages. I actually have quite a few Easter craft ideas for kids here on my blog, but I know your kids are going to LOVE this one! The marbleized painting process I’ll be showing you is so fun for little ones. Hint: it involves a box and a few golf balls and there’s a whole lot of shakin’ going on!
What you’ll need to make your Easter Egg Garland:
- Cardboard box (deep enough to contain your golf balls as they zing and bounce around)
- White cardboard or card stock
- pastel coloured paint (we used glitter paint as well)
- 2 or 3 golf balls
And now for the fun part – painting with golf balls!
The kids just love this part, and it can get pretty silly. If you think things might get a little out of hand, you might want to use a box with a lid. I find it helps to remind the hooligans to shake the box back and forth instead of bouncing it up and down.
Now, it might not look like much at this point, but just wait until you cut some “eggs” out of your painted paper or cardboard.
How to make a child’s sewing needle from a drinking straw:
Cut a plastic straw to the desired length, and make a small slit in one end. Feed your wool through the length of the straw, and slip it into the slit to secure it in place.
When the threading is done, drape your garland along a mantel or hang it in a window or doorway. Happy Easter!
