Plastic Easter Egg Craft Idea: Make Wobbly Easter Eggs!

Here's what you'll need to make these wobbly plastic egg crafts:

  • Glass beads or stones, dried beans, rocks, or whatever else you have on hand that is similar. - They will be your weights.
  • Hot glue gun
Open up the eggs, put some hot glue in the base, add your weights, and layer glue as needed.  Seal the eggs with more hot glue.  The eggs should now stand up and wobble when touched.

Now that you've made some wobbly eggs, it's time to play with them!

Playing with Wobbly Easter Eggs

I laid out all of the eggs on the floor for the boys to discover.  K examined them carefully and tried to open them, which he couldn't.  Then he started to get frustrated because he couldn't open them.  So I showed him that with just a simple touch, the eggs would wobble.  Well, that made him giggle.  He then continued to explore them.
