|Grab a few sparkly bits|
My Webblings have a St Georges Day project to do for next Friday and as I have been super busy getting the Enchanted Boutique ready so I needed a quick project that they could have fun with but wouldn't take a long time (or cost much, total cost was £5.00). The Webblings have decided they want to be dragons (the outfits will take longer than 5 minutes I am sure!!!) so they decided to make Dragon Eggs for their school projects. You can create these in under 5 mins but they need to dry overnight so don't start them just before the kids go to school!
I managed to get some plastic eggs (Frozen and Star Wars, other plastic egg varieties are available I am sure, haha) from the sweetie aisle and some glitter glue (paint would just flake off), star confetti and little pearl gems.
|cover the egg but don't worry about the colour showing through!|
|They started with one at a time.|
|Harry wasn't keen on getting glue on his hands!|
|so he decided sprinkling was a better method!|
Lilly was a little more delicate with her decorations so it took her a little longer but not much.
|Very Proud Harrison Webbling|

We left them to dry overnight and then peeled them off of the kitchen roll, did I mention some sort of table cover is essential? This is a messy activity and a disposable one would be best!!!
We put them together and hey presto! two beautiful Dragon eggs all ready for the St George's Day parade next Friday! Under 5 mins and around £5.00 including jelly beans!!!
|Finished Dragon Eggs!|
|Very happy little lady with her sparkly pink egg!|
The best bit about this project is that the Webblings got to do the whole things themselves too, it was short enough to keep Harrison's attention and sparkly enough to get Lilly really excited! Other than giving instructions I did nothing to help them with this project, they have a real sense of pride and ownership of their eggs that they wouldn't have had if I had made them for them! They are so pretty too. It is a bit messy but not too badly and doesn't take up lots of space.
If you decide to let your little ones make them please post a picture, I would love to see more!
