Miniature Speckled Eggs

Miniature Speckled Eggs

All things tiny are loved in our house! When we made these sweet little eggs they went straight to the fairy house. I think that was the perfect spot for them.

Ages:
3 - 9
Est. Time:
<1 hour

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. oven-bake clay
  2. parchment paper
  3. baking sheet
  4. brown acrylic paint
  5. paint brush
  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. We placed all of our eggs on a parchment lined baking sheet and baked for about 15 minutes.

  4. 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.

  5. Are these beautiful, or what? I would like a set for myself!
