How to paint dot an Easter egg #MakeItMonday

DSC 0404

Easter is creeping up, it's only 11 days until Good Friday! 
it's nearly time to stock those chocolate eggs and go on Easter egg hunts! How exciting :D 
But before you do all that, check out how to decorate an egg in a unique way in our new #MakeItMonday video.
It's so easy to do and you will love the end result as well the process of dot painting an egg. 

You will  need: 

  • An egg
  • Paints of different colours
  • Brushes of different sizes
  • A knife
  • Ribbon
  • Glue

Step 1:
With the knife, gently make 2 holes on both top and bottom of the egg. Be careful and don't rush so the egg doesn't crack.

Step 2
Blow the yolk and egg white out of the egg by either using a straw or your mouth. Be 
patient :) 

Step 3:
Glue the ribbon to the egg and make a bow on top.

Step 4
Using the ends of brushes, dot the colours to create your unique patterns and designs. 

Why do we exchange eggs at Easter time, what do they represent? In Christian faith eggs represent a symbol of new beginnings, new life and renewed faith. The act of exchanging gifts of eggs dates back to the time of the Egyptians and Persians! Painted eggs were given as gifts to symbolize fertility and new life

Chocolate Easter eggs were not introduced until the early 1900s. Before the exchanging of chocolate eggs, gifts consisted of decorated chicken eggs and stuffed hollow cardboard eggs

Different countries celebrate Easter in different ways. In Sweden they do not have an Easter Bunny, they have an Easter Wizard!

The session was brilliant

The session was brilliant. Joanna was a perfectionist, she completely understood that due to the nature of the class, artworks had to be immaculate (very difficult for a bunch of babies!!). She was extremely patient and managed a very busy crowd so well. There were masses of materials and you were free to do as you pleased. We didn't feel rushed. Great session, definitely recommended!

A really nice evening

A really nice evening spent making some lovely crafts! I had an excellent time with my friend, who had suggested the evening in the first place, and now I have some nice reminders decorating my windowsill and bookshelf.

Christmas card making!

Can’t fault Jo and her sessions. We’ve attended a couple of them and nothing is too much trouble and my little one loves getting messy. Can’t wait to get my Christmas cards through from this session!! Roll on December when we can start again with my youngest.

Welcoming, creative and fun!

It was such a lovely class. I usually avoid stuff like this with both my toddlers but it was so well-organised and the resources were so manageable that it was fine with two. The boys both loved it and the art they came home with was fab. Thank you!!
