Easter is almost here and if you are looking for some beautiful, easy last minute crafts you've come to the right place.
Water color and crayon resist Easter eggs. I cut large eggs out of white construction paper. The kids made patterns on the eggs with oil pastels (crayons work too) because they are nice and vibrant against the watercolor. Then the kids watercolored over the entire egg. They loved how their patterns still showed - "like magic"!
First we taped a piece of contact paper sticky side up onto a table. The sheet size depends on what size your cross template is. Supply the kids with lots of tissue squares to stick. Then we covered the sheet with another piece of contact paper in the same size (sticky side down). Then the tissue squares are protected inside the two pieces of contact paper. Finally we used a cross template to cut out the crosses. They look really pretty in a window.
