After doing this for 6years with two kids forthe past 4years I have ran out of ideas or the ones I have the kids wont do. Anyone got any sensible, suitable ideas that are easy to do. Know I'm asking a lot but rep will be given. Thanks

ladybird
robot
fire engine
eye

Our school is doing a cress egg head competition, we decorated ours today. I painted it white and drew on whiskers and a nose, we stuck on seem wiggly eyes and use bright pink pipe cleaners for ears.

Dont know who had more fun me or my son!! but then this is my first year so i'll soon get bored

Ohh Bambu do you have pics of the fire engine one as my youngest would love that but I am trying hard to picture an egg shaped fire engine!
#5
Mine when I was at school was a hEGGdgehog lol, spent hours cutting the ends of cocktail sticks, painting them brown and sticking them on.

Nightmare and I didn't win lol.

right get a box paint (a weetabix box the size with 12 in) it as a fire engine then make a hole in the top decorate the egg as the driver slot it in the hole paint some black circles for the wheels and hey presto!

We have in the past tried to use the macdonalds toys or current film as inspiration; ie
finding nemo (We actually won with this one)
narnia
star wars
have also done
a baby
a ladybird
a rabbit
I suggested doing a friut bowl ie five aday as all the schools are pushing healthy eating but neither of them want to do it. I also suggested to my DD russian dolls I would get three different size eggs but she wont do that either.

good, it's nice for them to do it, makes the comp fairer


Yeah I would rather that as some parents go way over the top and the kids don't even get to enjoy doing it themselves

Just want to say thanks button moon for all the links unfortunately they all seem to be for just colouring the egg not making it into a character.
#18

In the end my daughter done a butterfly in an easter garden and won 3rd prize a small choc buttons egg and my son done pacman the game and didn't win anything. Thanks to everyone for there help.

if u crack the shells slightly and use food colourings you can actually colour the egg inside in a tie dye fashion.. makes it look like a marbling effect and its still edible!
