I just thought of a good idea for kids or even adults. You can make some playdough (home made) and the shape it into eggs, then let it dry completly. I put mine in the oven to cook. Then when they get out I buff them down a littl to make them smooth, then I paint them how ever I want, then spray a poly spray on it to prevent chipping. My son and I will be doing this this year for easter, and as for easter presents.

I think that is a really great idea!!! In our religion, we celebrate Ostara...but we also have the egg decorating thing. :) Since my children will be on Spring Break during our celebration, I think this is a great idea for a craft for the kids! Thanks!!!

Easter presents, what an idea. We had baskets when I was a child, but didn't give any other presents. My mom used to make a flour & salt clay for us kids when I was a kid - is that the stuff you are talking about? Now the recepies all seem to call for corn starch & that's not happening here!

That is such a good idea. I hope it goes completely well for you and your boy. They should turn out really nice and I hope that you will be sharing pictures once the holiday is over. I hope alot of us get to do this and make some memories in the process. Thanks for sharing this idea with all of Mylot.
