I have spent the morning sorting through the decorations box or I should say boxes! I found the old easter eggs. I made these about 9 years ago. At the time of making them I honestly thought they would disintegrate after the first couple of rounds of hiding and hunting. They have lasted well considering they come out every year, friends have borrowed them and some have been used as footy practice! They are a bit dimpled now but still hold lots of memories.
These are just a few. I made them oversized at the time because the children were only little. I used small oval balloons and covered them with newspaper soaked in wall paper paste . When they had sufficient coats of paper on, about 6, I cut off the tail of the balloon and added a few strips of the paper to seal the end. I then painted them with some acrylic paint.
Everyone is slightly older now but they still enjoy racing around the garden trying to find them. It has just got a little bit more boisterous.
Best Wishes Florence.
