A great craft for all the recyclers and/or scavengers out there

We loved this super easy project from Modern Parents, Messy Kids. It’s perfect for when you feel your home needs a little seasonal decor, but you don’t want to spend more than a few minutes on anything. And while we love the absolutely, ridiculously easy aspect of punching holes in paint-chips, that doesn’t mean you can’t step it up a bit by having the kids all decorate a bunch of egg cutouts and creating a garland from that.

You’ll need:

  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Paint chips
  • Small hole punch
  • String (waxed cotton works nicely and does not slip)


1.  Raid your local paint or hardware store for a variety of paint chips in bright spring colours

2. Create an egg-shaped template and using a pencil, trace it onto the backs of the paint chips (it looks nice if you try to keep the white border in the center of the eggs)

3. Cut egg shapes out, punching two holes into the top of the eggs

3. Thread string through the holes eggs through

4. Hang!
