Easter Eggs Decoration, Clay Stamped Easter Egg Tree

 

Remember the wall tree we are keeping up for the year? Its time to decorate it for Easter, to create our own Easter Egg Tree:)

The children and I had a go at making egg shapes from air drying clay, and stamping them with patterns to add texture.

To make your own roll out your clay to 3-4mm thick. Cut out with cutters, and smooth any rough edges.

Next – the fun part. Using a selection of stamps and inks add texture to your egg shapes – I limited the children to two toning colours and three stamps. This worked well, if given free rein the eggs may have become a little over decorated!!

If you are planning on hanging your eggs add a small hole at the top to in order to be able to thread through string or similar. We used a wooden kebab skewer.

The children had not worked with air clay before – they loved the texture, and happily continued playing creating all sorts.

All I had to do was hang them on our Easter Egg Tree. Are you decorating for Easter?
