Easter Egg Banner Kid Kit

Just in time for Easter! I love this Easter Egg Banner Kit. I love it because the whole family can make it together. You just have to pour out all the decorations on the table, divvy up the eggs among family members, and have some quality time with the people you love the most.  


Since the time I began creating this kit, I've spent about 5 gazillion hours in our basement punching out paper decorations. Don't worry, I've already crossed that task off my personal list toward craft martyrdom. Anyway, since I'm a work-at-home mom, I needed to keep Peyton and Ella occupied. So I put out extra eggs and decorations and they had a blast! I was pretty impressed with Peyton's scissor skills. He cut out all his own eggs. Looking at the picture, I bet you can hardly tell the difference between the eggs he cut out and the ones I cut out for Ella. I'm so proud! 

Something else you might not be able to tell from the picture is how Peyton insisted on layering decorations on top of decorations on top of more decorations. Seriously, his eggs have some major depth.  

And, of course, I marked their names and the date on the back of each egg. Not so much for accuracy, but more for the bonus points I will receive in 20-30 years when Peyton and Ella have kids of their own, and they realize the risks I took when I let a 3-year-old and a 5-year-old play willy-nilly with scissors, glue, and sequins on a daily basis. The biggest risk being that once you create a project with sequins, you will find sequins throughout the house until the end of time. 

Happy Crafting!
