Spring is almost here and with it comes warmth, flowers, colors and fun holidays like Easter. It’s the perfect time to celebrate with some Easter egg crafts with your kids or by yourself.
Today’s Wrapped glittery Easter eggs are something you can use for years to come as pretty holiday decorations or you can add them to the easter hunt to bring a little variety and glitter to their baskets.
You can use colored twine and different colored ribbon and glitter or you can use the simple cream-colored twine like we did. This is a fun crafting project for all ages! So let’s get into it.
***Check out this Cherry Sparkle Slime we made with the kids the other day. It’s non-sticky, no mess slime you and your kids will love.

First Grab all of your crafting materials. This project is super cheap to recreate and you can find everything you need in the list below on Amazon. Just click the product to find out more.
Now let’s grab our glue and our foam eggs. Put glue in the hole in the top and start your twin or yarn there. Stick it in the hole so it will stay put. Be sure to put down a piece of paper underneath so you don’t get glue on your table or counter.
Next, begin wrapping your twine slowly in a circular pattern. Be sure to lay a strip of glue for each circle to hold the twine firmly in place. Taking your time and using the right amount of glue will make these decorations last for years.
Continue to slowly wrap the twine all the way down the egg. As you go push the twine in firmly so that it lays tightly up against the foam egg.
After that, add a thick layer of glue to the bottom half of your egg. This will hold your glitter on a bit later.
Slime is always a fun activity for young kids, and sometimes older ones too. It’s satisfying to make, they enjoy the process and afterward, they get to dive into mess free squishy fun.
It is a great sensory experience and can be made in so many fun different ways.

If this is your first time making slime lets talk about it for a minute. Our slime is non-toxic and it’s made of non-sticky ingredients ( once mixed ). It comes together perfectly to make the best product.
We use Elmer’s liquid glitter glue with baking soda and contact solution. Then we add some pretty things to make it darker in color and sparkly. See The Actual Recipe with amounts at The bottom of the post.
Slime is a lot of fun for kids to play with – however, we recommend adult supervision and that adults should make the slime while the kids assist. Until the product is mixed the glue could possibly get messy.
One more thing, while this cherry slime looks good enough to eat, it is definitely not edible. Make sure the children you are creating with realize that it’s not something they should be eating.
Here are the ingredients you’ll need to get started:
Once you have everything together you can begin mixing it up!
Slime Tip: Always use the glue indicated in the recipe. Using a different brand could yield different results. We use good ole Elmers Glue in our recipes. It’s the best for making slime.
You begin by adding your glue, baking soda then you move on to the contact solution.
After mixing the main ingredients together you get to add the fun stuff.
But this step is optional. If you want to make a quick slime recipe you could stop here and leave out the glitter and add-ons. But here we think the more glittery, the better!
We added jumbo silver glitter here but you can go on to add a variety of things including colored sprinkles. When adding sprinkles let it sit for a few minutes then spread it with your fingers to get an amazing rainbow effect ( not shown here ).
We also added little styrofoam balls and mixed those in to add a little more bulk to this sensory experience.
After this step, you can allow your children to help if you’d like. It won’t be sticky anymore and they can help mix up the glitter and balls.
Then if you want to darken your cherry slime you can add some food coloring. This will make the color denser and a little less transparent but this is optional. Put it back in the bowl and do this yourself to avoid any messes.
And this is what you’ll get after it’s all said and done! A really pretty, bright red slime that is soft to the touch and not messy at all.
Have a look at the texture. It doesn’t come apart in little globs so it won’t be left all over the house or get caught in the carpet. It’s good stuff.
Be sure to read the instructions carefully. The type of contact lens solution you need and glue is really important! Substituting these ingredients for other brands may result in your slime not working. We also do not recommend substituting the brands in the recipe for a generic ( as I mentioned before ) because their formula will no doubt be slightly different.
