Simple to make and fun to smash, these dragon eggs were a big hit with the kids. We decided to do these instead of a Pinata so each child got there own little goodies. Plus since it was Easter I thought it would be fun to make them go looking for the eggs.
To make the dragon eggs you will need:
- Paper mache glue. I used a mixture of flour and water. Start with a 50/50 mix and add either flour or water to get it to a consistency that works well for you. Mine was just a little thinner than a pancake mix.
- Paint/spray paint
- To start with you want to blow up the balloon.
- Rip your newspaper into medium size piece. Not to big as they won't go around the curves nicely and not to small as, well it would take forever.
- Start putting the paper around the balloon. I liked to dip my paper in the glue then stick it to the balloon but you can always but the glue on the balloon first. Once my paper was stuck I would spread a light layer over the top to stick the edges down. I left the opening where the balloon tie was so I could add my goodies later. It also made it easy to hang them on the clothes line to dry between each layer.
- Once you have done at least 3 layers you can pop the balloon and add your goodies. Then you can carefully close the hole with more layers of paper mache.
- When your paper mache egg is dry, you can paint it. I started using a brush but it didn't take long for me to enlist my husbands help and get him to spray paint them.
