Lots of Dots
Total Time 1 hour Ages preschooler

Glue dots and lines (available in various sizes in the scrapbooking or tape and glue aisles of craft stores) have made fixing one material to another as simple as peeling and sticking. Here, we've used them to decorate dyed, hard-boiled eggs with colored sand. So go ahead and break the mold when decorating your eggs this year -- and have an eggs-traordinary time in the process.

What you'll need

  • Egg dye
  • Hard-boiled eggs, cooled
  • Colored sand (available at craft stores) or fine glitter
  • Small bowls
  • Glue dots or lines

How to make it

  1. Dye your hard-boiled eggs and allow them to dry completely.

  2. Pour the colored sand into bowls.

  3. Lots of Dots (and Lines) - Step 3

    Apply glue dots or lines to one half of your egg, then gently roll that side in the sand, covering the glue completely. Be careful not to let the glue stick to any surfaces, or you could have a hard time freeing your egg!

  4. Repeat with the other half of the egg.
