Easter will be here & then over before we know it. Many homes will be dealing with the aftermath of Easter grass, jelly beans & all of those left-over plastic Easter eggs. I for one love those left-over plastic eggs because there are so many fun things that you can do with them.
Check out a few other ideas:
We decided to make little egg cars. Here is how.
What you will need:
Extra large plastic eggs
Glue gun (As always use caution with a glue gun.)
Optional: small beads or Ditalini pasta pieces
Draw a simple car design on the egg with a Sharpie.
You can do this next step in a few different ways.
- Use a hot glue gun to glue 2 small beads to each end of a toothpick or (in our case we used painted Ditalini pasta because we use them as beads often). Make sure to leave room to slide the button on. OR
- You can just use a dab of glue, instead of a bead, on either end. This will keep the button from sliding around.
Slide in a button on each side & put a dab of hot glue on the end to keep the button from sliding off. Do not glue the button though, let it spin loose. Repeat with another toothpick.
Glue both sets of button wheels to the bottom of the plastic egg. Let the glue dry.
My daughter could not wait to get her hands on these.
She quickly started cutting up paper to make roads & I jumped in to help. We used chalk to draw the street lines.
We glued paper down for the grass around the roads too.
My daughter wanted to have races with our cars.
For some reason, she always won & she waved her victory flag every time.
Our little egg mobiles turned into a fun project day as she wanted to add in houses & schools and make a whole city to go with our cars.
