Late easter

I know, i know, easter is gone but i promised my kids (6 and 7 years old) to put their crafts on my blog so here they are. The eggs my kids decorated with tissues and a chicken my boy made out of a paper plate.
This is how you make the eggs:
Very easy to do.
You buy polyester eggs. Pick some colorfull paper tissue. Every tissue is made of 3 layers: use only the top layer which is the printed one.( I helped my kids with tearing off the toplayer).
Put glue on the egg. We used ModgePodge, a glue especially used for tissue-art. Then, using a sponge or the tip of a brush, gentily put on the tissue. For litle kids it is easier when the tissue is first teared into small pieces.
