Streamer Eggstravaganza



Today O and I used up leftover party streamers to make some colorful spring crafts. Our theme of the day was most definitely EGGS...I tried to branch out but O was very adamant about our subject matter! To create our collages we used a paintbrush and applied watered down white craft glue to our cut out images.
  

O needed a little help cutting out here collage pieces but was able to adhere them all herself. The results were beautiful.  At first we just did eggs.


Later we experimented with pictorial scences.




Finally, we used up our paper scraps to craft this beautiful egg. 

We twisted each scrap tightly around the end of a pencil, once firmly attached we dipped it into glue, and then applied it to our template.  This was a time consuming project but it was the perfect way to spend a rainy Monday afternoon.  We were able to chase away the gray skies with our colorful masterpieces.
