Chalkboard easter eggs
- Few Eggs (boiled) or wooden/plastic eggs
- One box Chalkboard paint
- One plastic spoon
- One medium sized paint brush
- One empty egg carton
Steps to make chalkboard easter eggs
Pour out some chalkboard paint in an old plastic bowl and carefully place the egg in it
Using the plastic spoon, roll the egg around the paint
Now, carefully lift the egg and place it on the egg carton
After a few hours, flip the eggs over in the carton, let the bottom side dry
Once the eggs are completely dry, touch up using the paintbrush until fully covered.
Leave the eggs to dry for a day more, then paint on them using the chalk sticks
If you want to redesign your egg, just erase using a tissue, then redraw! Go to SuperMommy.com.sg to see how!
