Marbling eggs 2

Easter is upon us and with this fun craft activity you can create an Easter centrepiece for your table and everyone can get involved in the making.

People all over the world are celebrating Easter by eating chocolate eggs, going on egg hunts and inviting friends and family over for an Easter meal.

This year make your table stand out with this lovely decoration that will wow your guests because of its unique design as no 2 eggs will come out the same.

The children will love marbling too as it's a lot of fun and you can mix and match as many colours as you like. Have a go at creating this awesome centrepiece that is so easy to make, it will make you want to marble everything you see!

You will need:

  • Polystyrene eggs
  • Marbling inks
  • Ribbon
  • Drawing pins
  • Water
  • Plastic container/tub
  • Gloves
  • Scissors
  • Willow

Alternatively keep scrolling for step by step instructions :) 

Step 1:

Cut approx 30 cmm of the willow and stick the egg on top.

Step 2:

Add marbling inks to the water in the plastic container. Put in 10 drops to start off with, add as many drops in as you want. The more you add, the more consistent colours will look.

Step 3:

Cut off a little bit of the willow to use as a stirring stick to create your unique patterns on water.

Step 4:

Put on gloves and carefully dip the egg in the water solution. Marbling inks are oily and very tricky to get off so use gloves and be careful as the egg will jump back up.

Step 5: 

Make a bow from the ribbon and attach it to the top of the egg with a drawing pin. It will be easier to dry this way.

Step 6:

Hang up and leave to dry for approx. 15-20 minutes.

Excellent party by Farah the Creation Station Host for NW3

We had a party for our daughter who was just turning 7 and she wanted an arty party. A friend recommended the Creation Station and as we live in NW3 the local franchise owner was Farah Wahed. After Farah sent all the party information, we had a couple of phone calls including one with our daughter so she could be involved in picking activities and choosing the music. We had the party on Saturday and it was fantastic. From the moment the 20 guests arrived they were captivated and left having had an awesome time. Farah was amazing, she kept everyone's attention, made the party great fun and together with her helper Michelle ensured that our daughter and her friends had a memorable afternoon. We have 4 kids and this was the calmest party we've had (for us as parents) and one we'd repeat!

Creation station west Berkshire

This was the first time I have been to a creation station session and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The cafe it was held in was a little small for buggys but the owner was very accommodating and we all had a lovely slice of cake and a hot drink. The materials we were given to work with were over and above what I thought we would get and I have created some lovely Christmas keepsakes with my daughter. Vicky and her helper were great at sharing ideas, tips and keeping babies occupied leaving me to finish my creations. Looking forward to the next session!
