Egg-citing Egg Creatures

Egg-citing Egg Creatures craft

Make colorful plastic eggs even more fun using Model Magic®, your imagination, and simple marbling and modeling techniques.

  • 1.

    Decorate plastic eggs any way you like with Crayola Model Magic®. The bright Model Magic colors and textures easily stick to themselves and most surfaces, including the eggs. These are some possibilities to try.

  • 2.

    Cover eggs with a thin Model Magic layer in as many colors as you like. Marble two Model Magic colors by kneading them a little bit. Flatten the marbled modeling compound and press it onto a plastic egg. Cover the egg with patches of different marbled color combinations. Be sure to leave the opening free of modeling compound so you can open and close the egg!

  • 3.

    To make multilayer balls for dotted eggs, roll a small ball. Gently press and release your finger in one spot. Press on a smaller ball of a second color for great color-pop!

  • 4.

    Roll Model Magic bits into thin ribbons. Press on the plastic egg to make swirls and wiggles. Twist a long ribbon around and around the egg for a spiral. Or make multiple colored stripes!

    Make egg-citing creatures to hide inside the eggs, too. Use your imagination with techniques like these to form real or imaginary creatures: Roll a marbled Model Magic ball small enough to fit inside a plastic egg. Roll two small Model Magic balls for eyes. Press them onto the bigger ball. Roll two even tinier balls to press onto the small balls. Another tiny ball can be a nose! Roll thin ribbons of Model Magic for legs, hair, or smiles!

    Model Magic dries to the touch overnight and dries completely in 2 to 3 days.

    Fill a basket of colorful eggs to give as gifts. Make a nest full of creatures to share with friends! Dried pieces can be attached with Crayola School Glue.
