Easter Crafts At Grammas

Yesterday was Craft Day at my house.
I remember making these string eggs when I was a kid.

But I don't remember having as much difficulties as everyone was having that day. Aunt Tammi had found this idea on the internet and they called for yarn cut in 36" pieces that you dipped in a mixture of glue & water.

Well the yarn kept slipping off the balloons and then they would have to start all over. And the balloons became so slippery from the glue that they were hard to hold onto.

It was funny at first, but then the kids started getting very frustrated. I think our problem was that we shouldn't have cut the yarn into pieces but left it in one piece to wrap around. Maybe a string would have worked better than yarn too. Anyway, they were planning on doing all these balloons that they blew up. hehehe

Everyone decided that one a piece was plenty!

All the grandkids will be stopping by on Wednesday to let the balloons out of their creations.
We will see how they turned out then.
