Crayola Egg-citing Egg Creatures
Make colorful plastic eggs even more fun by making Crayola Egg-citing Egg Creatures a project that uses your imagination and simple marbling and modeling techniques.
- Time:1/2 hour
1Note: Model Magic dries to the touch overnight and dries completely in 2 to 3 days. Project time does not include this drying time.
2Decorate plastic eggs any way you like with the clay. Using the clay listed in supplies colors and textures easily stick to themselves and most surfaces, including the eggs. These are some possibilities to try: Cover eggs with a thin layer of clay in as many colors as you like. Marble two colors by kneading them a little bit. Flatten the marbled modeling compound and press it onto a plastic egg. Cover the egg with patches of different marbled color combinations. Be sure to leave the opening free of modeling compound so you can open and close the egg! To make multilayer balls for dotted eggs, roll a small ball of clay. Gently press and release your finger in one spot. Press on a smaller ball of a second color for great color-pop! Roll clay bits into thin ribbons. Press on the plastic egg to make swirls and wiggles. Twist a long ribbon around and around the egg for a spiral. Or make multiple colored stripes!
3Make egg-citing creatures to hide inside the eggs, too. Use your imagination with techniques like these to form real or imaginary creatures: Roll a marbled clay ball small enough to fit inside a plastic egg. Roll two small balls for eyes. Press them onto the bigger ball. Roll two even tinier balls to press onto the small balls. Another tiny ball can be a nose! Roll thin ribbons of Model Magic for legs, hair, or smiles!
4Fill a basket of colorful eggs to give as gifts. Make a nest full of creatures to share with friends!
