String Eggs

These eggs are easy and fun for kids to make. You’ll need craft string, water balloons, white glue and water. Blow up the balloons in various sizes. Dip lengths of string in a mixture of equal parts glue and water. Wrap it around the balloon and let it dry for 2-3 hours. Pop the balloon and pull the pieces out of the egg.  Use another piece of string to make hanging decorations, or display them in a basket.

Mason Jar Chick

A small jar becomes an adorable treat holder when filled with Starburst candies. Tape on yellow cupcake holders for wings and draw a face on the glass using a sharpie marker, or if you’re feeling crafty, cut a beak and feet from construction paper. Sure, you have to pick out all the yellow candies from the bag, but since they come in red and pink, too, use your imagination and make another cute critter.
