Miniature Speckled Eggs
How we did it:
- oven-bake clay
- parchment paper
- baking sheet
- brown acrylic paint
- paint brush
We used a pale blue oven bake clay, but it would be fun to do an assortment of colors. I preheated the oven to 275 degrees per my clay instructions.
First, the kids worked the clay a little bit to soften it. Then they each took small amounts and rolled them in between their hands to make an egg shape.
We placed all of our eggs on a parchment lined baking sheet and baked for about 15 minutes.
Once they were cool the kids insisted on adding some specks, just like a real egg. They did this by using a very small amount of paint to make spots on the egg and while still wet rolling it between their hands. This gave it a very realistic look.
Are these beautiful, or what? I would like a set for myself!
