Easter-Egg-in-the-Grass Cards

We made Easter-Egg-in-the-Grass Cards today.  

These are lots of fun to make and they give your child a chance to practice folding, cutting, and gluing, too!  

Start by cutting out and decorating Easter eggs for your card.  We used two different methods to decorate our eggs: watercolors painted on with brushes, and shaving cream painting.  You can use whatever method you want to decorate your eggs, but here are some ideas: salad spinner art, painting with paint brushes, finger painting, Do-A-Dot markers, glue and glitter, even just coloring with crayons!

The card-making part is pretty self-explanatory.  If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then there’s no use in me TELLING you how to do it, I’ll just let Luke show you!  I didn’t get pics of every single step, but I think you’ll probably be able to fill in the blanks. 🙂
