Get Started

Using the laundry starch as an adhesive, cover the balloons in tissue, leaving only a small space around the knot of the balloon. Now get creative and decorate your egg with glitter, paint or anything that comes to mind! Once the tissue and decor dries, you can prick the balloon with the scissors and pull it out through the hole you left. Voilà!

Puzzle Piece Hunt

If you want to avoid giving out too many sugary treats this year, a fun spin on the traditional egg hunt is to fill each of your plastic eggs with a puzzle piece! This can be great to use for kids of all ages. It will encourage children to find all the eggs and piece their puzzles together as a team.

Daisy Chains

For an activity other than decorating eggs, try this one instead. All you need is a bunch of daisies and a pair of scissors. Snip the stems to about 4 inches long, make a small slit in each stem halfway down. Show family members how to thread one flower through the next until they have a chain long enough to make into a bracelet, headband, or necklace. To finish it off, simply thread the last flower stem through the first.
