Easy Spring Crafts {FREEBIE}

Last week, the teacher across the hall shared her adorable spring chic egg craft with me. I was out for meetings, so I actually had a sub do it.

How cute did these come out??? The cracked shell is painted with shaving cream and food coloring. When it dried, it had this fabulous marble effect. I thought this would be a fun craft to do with my girls this week on spring break.
My EA hand traced the chic in the top picture. I decided to use this chic in my clip art by Enlightened Elephant. The girls colored it. It might be easier to run it off on colored paper.
Then, I mixed up the shaving cream with the food coloring. The girls painted this on. Then, I gave them a second color for the marble effect. When it dries, it just looks like flat paint. If you want the puffy effect, you have to add Elmer's glue.

We kept the crafting going by painting these adorable eggs with pom-poms. 

It was a fun, easy fine motor activity. You can get both of these templates HERE free.

I am linking up this craft project with Mel at Frog Spot. Do you have a crafty idea or need some more crafty ideas? Check it out!

I also checked a few work items off my To-Do List. I have finished my Spring Word Work Centers. There are 6 word work activities to work on sight words, CVC words, vowels, beginning digraphs, and rhyming words. As always, it is 50% off for the first 48 hours.

Hopefully, I will get my Spring Math Centers posted tomorrow.

In honor of tax day, my entire store will be 15% off April 15th and 16th.
