Mosaic Easter Egg

Can you belive it, friends?  St. Patrick’s Day is over, Spring is in the air, and Easter is less than three weeks away!
Which means, it’s time for this artsy mama and her little crafter to get busy with some Easter crafts!
LC has been obsessed with Easter eggs lately…he makes us hide them a million times a day so he can “practice” finding them.
 We get some funny looks when we show up at the park with an Easter basket three weeks early…
Anyway, he picked out a fun Easter egg project for himself to do.  We have been surfing Pinterest a lot together lately…he has his own board where he’s pinned things like this:
Just add food coloring to your boiling water to color your noodles!Easy Easter Craft ~ Easter Bunny Suckers
Handprint Baby Chick Craft + Stories  LC: LC: "You just put a pin and two sticks on and I think it makes a airplane Mommy!"
…and one of the things we found was a mosaic egg made from scrap paper.  Here’s how we made our own:
 MOSAIC EASTER EGG
Materials:
one piece of cardstock
scrap pieces of patterned paper
scissors
glue stick

 STEP 1: I sketched the outline of an egg on our cardstock.

STEP 2: Have your little helper glue scrap pieces all over it until it’s totally covered.

STEP 3: Cut out egg shape.  That’s all there is to it!  You can also punch a hole and add a ribbon to hang it up if you like.

It was easy, fun, and FREE, plus it’s a great way to use up all those little scraps I have left over from other projects!
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I believe I have some eggs to hide…

    VERY cute! And what a great idea to surf Pinterest TOGETHER for fun crafts. That kind of doubles the fun, doesn’t it? And if I’m on Pinterest WITH my child it doesn’t really count as wasting my time, it’s us doing something together . . . you are brilliant!

    This is really cute. I also love the little plane he pinned. Sometimes I’ll have my oldest pin with me too. She likes it.
