Twine Easter Egg

Adults help, water balloon or small balloon, oil or vaseline, small Easter eggs, twine, PVA glue, paint.

  1. Get an adult to help you stretch the balloon enough to stick at least two chocolate eggs inside-this can be tricky.

  2. Blow up the balloon and tie it up, then lightly coat the surface in oil or Vaseline; this will stop the twine from sticking.

  3. Mix glue and paint together.

  4. Unravel some twine and coat in the gluey/paint mix.

  5. Wrap the painted twine around the balloon and then unravel some more to paint.

  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5, turning the balloon in different directions until it has formed an egg-shaped net.

  7. Wait until the twine is completely dry and hardened, then pop your balloon. A water balloon pops best but they are the hardest to fill with eggs.

  8. Carefully pull out any remaining balloon pieces; you should now have a very cool see-through Easter egg egg. -That's Crafty!
