After living for many years in Boston, I have a soft spot for the ducklings from McCloskey’s classic children’s book which have been immortalized as bronze sculptures in the Boston Public Gardens. Living far from Boston, I decided that my kids needed their own little duck family to decorate the house in time for Easter.
We usually dye eggs for Easter but this time I decided to put our eggs shells to another use…
You will need:
Egg shells (see tutorial here)
Yellow acrylic paint
Orange Craft Foam
Yellow tissue paper
Let’s get started:
Step 1: Paint your egg shells yellow.
Step 2: Fill around 1/3 with sand.
Step 3: Use the lamination glue to cover the hole in the shell with a piece of yellow tissue paper.
Step 4: Cut out wings, beak and webbed feet.
Step 5: Glue onto the egg.
Step 5: Glue on google eyes.
Even did one with feathers….
