Easter is only a week away. We have been shopping & preparing for the holiday. I have a ton of plastic Easter eggs lying around waiting to get filled. I should rephrase that, I had a ton of plastic Easter eggs. My daughter has been slowly depleting my supply & using them in her play kitchen.

She pretends to crack them open & throws the empty egg shells in the trash. I had to give her a pretend trash because she was throwing them away for real. She take pretend play very seriously. She has been having a lot of fun mixing up her air eggs, but since she likes the realistic, I thought we could add a little something extra to her pretend egg scrambles. Here is what we did.
We made up a quick batch of slime.
2.5 oz of clear school glue
2.5 oz of white school glue
1/2 cup of liquid starch
Extra-large plastic eggs
Directions: Pour all of the glue into a bowl. You can use all clear or all white glue, but to achieve the look I was going for I used a mixture of half & half.
Add the liquid starch in very small increments at a time. Stir it well as you go. It will thicken quickly. Be careful not to add the starch too quickly.
When it gets to thick to stir, you can use your hands to knead it. I used just shy of the 1/2 of liquid starch & then added spoonfuls of water at a time until I achieved the consistency I was looking for. My daughter helped.
Use the Play-doh to form little yellow balls for the yoke. Flatten them out a little with your hand.
Grab a handful of your slime & add a yolk to the top for a realistic looking sunny side-up egg.
Or you can put the slime & yolk into an extra-large plastic egg for a fun egg cracking experience.
My daughter thought that this was hilarious. “Mama, it looks like real eggs.” It turns out that just like with regular eggs that she does not like the yolk, so she pulled those out & just played with the whites. Like I said, my daughter likes to keep things realistic.
