Kids Washi Tape Easter Eggs

kids washi tape easter eggsYesterday stuck for something to do I thought it would be fun to decorate some Easter eggs with The Toddler. Naturally my first idea was a disaster so I had to quickly think of something else I had around the house. Washi tape! Of course!! I wasn’t sure if he’d fancy it but these washi tape Easter eggs were super popular with him. 

To make them we merely got a packet of stylafoam Easter eggs (£1 from The Works if you’re on the hunt for some) and covered them in bits of washi tape. As my son is only three I had to help him tear the washi tape. Apologies for the fact that there aren’t more action shots here but naturally I ended up feeding the baby at the same time. I am pleased to report that you can tear washi tape while holding a bottle under your chin.

The toddler really concentrated hard on this task and took ages over it, ensuring each egg looked how he wanted it to and smoothing down the tape to keep them egg shaped. I also go regular instructions on which colour tape he wanted more of!

We have put his decorated eggs in a bowl in our front room alongside some of the other Easter crafts he has been doing to make a nice little Easter display. He also enjoyed throwing them around the room while I was trying to photograph them but they’re really lightweight so I didn’t mind too much!

    This is a good idea, and the best thing is that it’s easy for a toddler to do!

    Looks like simple easter fun. We have some of those eggs to decorate, not sure how yet. I’ve not used washi tape before, need to give it a go.

    My son loves washi tape and so I think he would love to do something like this. The styrofoam eggs look fantastic for crafting. I will have to look out for those. Thank you for the ideas x

    These look great, I really do need to look at washi tape I keep hearing about it and it looks fab! x

    Brilliant hun! I want to put branches in a vase and decorate each season & wasn’t looking forward to getting eggs out of the shells without it resulting in utter carnage – off to the works!
    Oh and I can just imagine you balancing a bottle and sticking tape at the same time #octopusmuch 🙂 xx

      Must add ‘human octopus’ to my cv 😉

    Lovely idea for little ones!

  8. These are so pretty and look like fun to make.

    Well done on the multi tasking too 😉

    Going to do some crafts like this as its so much fun .x

    I love washi tape. It’s very brave of you to let your son craft with it – I find it really hard to share my stash!

  12. 26th March 2014 / 9:54 pm

    I’ve not used washi tape before but it looks a) useful and b) something that my craft-loving girls will go ga-ga for. Going to have to get myself kitted out with washi tape, I can see. Great eggs, they look beautiful. And I love the way you can feed the baby at the same time!

    I have previously breezed on past these foam eggs in The Works – how good is this shop for cheap bits and bobs! I might see if my son will have a go at something like this as he is quite uninterested in crafts – probably due to not liking to getting his hands dirty, so this could be a good option. He could even put stickers on them. Thanks for the idea.

    • 28th March 2014 / 5:39 am

      The works and Wilkinsons are both great for cheap craft stuff 🙂

  14. 26th March 2014 / 11:53 pm

    Oh my gosh I love this idea! So simple but yet so fun for the children x

  15. 27th March 2014 / 6:59 am

    Wat a great simple idea

  16. 27th March 2014 / 8:18 am

    So glad that washi tape has caught on in the UK! Love the stuff!

    This looks like an easy and fun idea, great thinking cutting off small strips ready to stick and leaving your hand free. x

  18. 27th March 2014 / 11:09 pm

    Ooh these are great, sounds like they’re lots of fun too – even when you’re multi-tasking! Our 3 year old would love to make something like this. They’re pretty too, thank you for sharing 🙂

  19. 28th March 2014 / 7:04 am

    Love these – what a simple but effective idea

  20. 28th March 2014 / 8:04 pm

    I love love love this idea! I have lots of washi tape and i know the girls would have a blast doing this 🙂 x

  21. 28th March 2014 / 9:30 pm

    They’re brilliant! And result being able to do them and multi-task feeding the baby 🙂

      By all accounts I can pretty much do anything while feeding a baby by now. I think I must have grown an extra arm…

  22. 29th March 2014 / 1:56 pm

    these are brilliant! I love washi tape 🙂 x

  23. 30th March 2014 / 2:54 am

    I’m definitely going to have to get some washi tape. My kids will love doing a project like this with it – as well as probably sticking it everywhere they can.

    • 6th April 2014 / 7:20 pm

      Yeah, I still have a bit on the baby’s play gym…

  24. 30th March 2014 / 7:53 pm

    we have tons of washi tape in our house, what a great way to use some of it up!
