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!

I thought this would be something…

I thought this would be something different to do with my granddaughter who is 19 months old, I was a bit concerned it wouldn’t hold her attention for the 45 minutes but was pleasantly surprised to say it was only in the last 10 minutes she became a bit distracted. We will definitely be going again.
