Easter Egg Treats Craft for All Ages!



Perfect gift idea for the kids or adults! They won't know how you got the eggs in there!

Easter Egg Treats
What you will need
Water balloons (or very small regular balloons)
Craft Glue
Thin cotton yarn
Scissors
Pin
String
Mini Easter Eggs
1.Add Eggs into the balloon. Then blow the balloon up. Only blow them up part way, until they are the size of an egg. Tie them shut.
2. Mix equal parts of glue and water in a shallow disposable container.
3. Hold a strand of yarn by one end, dip it into the glue mixture, then wrap it around the balloon. Repeat with the other strands, randomly overlapping them and tucking in loose ends, until the balloon is evenly covered.
4.Once the egg is completely dry, carefully poke a hole in the balloon, then pull it away from the string as it deflates. Give it as a gift or use as a decoration.

Messy but Fun!
We used Elmer's glue, and probably shouldn't have mixed much water in. The kids were a little hesitant to get messy, but they eventually got in there and liked it!
