Our Easter decor has been noticeably lacking these past couple weeks and the girls were starting to question why we had nothing to show for the upcoming holiday when all the stores were clearly getting ready for it. So….we’ve been trying to add some festive Easter decor to our home, beginning with this super-simple garland!
Materials: plastic eggs, twine thin enough to fit into the holes, and a darning needle. (I tried a plastic needle and yarn first, but it was too thick to fit though the wholes in the eggs). The eggs should already have holes in the top and bottom.
Thread your needle take it though one end and then the other with the egg still open, then close the egg after you have passed through both sides.
Keep on threading until you have a pretty little garland to hang where desired! My girls are 2 1/2 and 3 and they both were able to help thread a few before losing interest. Plus we added in a little sequencing for extra, ahem, fun. :)
I took the pictures in my girls’ room because of the lighting, but ours will likely end up above our kitchen window.
Still to come is a paper-cutting project that the kidlets and I were able to do together. The results were wonderful and if I can get a good pic of it today, I shall have it posted by tonight!
