Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 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.

  • Step 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.

  • Step 3

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

  • Step 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.
