Make It Monday: Marshmallow Easter Eggs

This is a very, very easy project for Easter. But don't let its simplicity fool you. It actually sneaks a little bit of learning into craft time!

All you need is a paper cut-out of an egg and colored marshmallows.

Just hand your kids the 2 supplies and let their imaginations do the rest.

They might make stripes, polka-dots, trees, flowers or a smiley face complete with eyebrows and mustache!

Or . . .

They might just plop all the marshmallows onto the egg.  Hey, whatever works!

I took advantage of this time to work on colors with my 2 year old. He's known all his colors for many months, but he still likes going over them. I would say "find a green marshmallow" or "can you put a pink one on the egg?" It was good review.

You can even practice patterns - easy ones for the younger kids and harder ones for the older.

But the best part???

Cleaning up!

Zac ate all of his marshmallows long before the other 2 kids were finished creating and recreating their Easter eggs. He kept reaching across the table to grab some out of Alyssa's bowl.

Little Stinker!

Grab some paper eggs and marshmallows and have fun decorating your own Easter eggs! 

Just make sure you have plenty of marshmallows to go around!
