The Easter Bunny Returns
We stumbled upon this idea whilst trawling pinterest for inspiration and we simply had to do it.
It was a great activity to do with the kids and we can thoroughly recommend it.
All you need is a balloon, some yarn, PVA glue and something to put in your balloon, we chose mini eggs.
Step 1. Get some yarn to wrap around the balloon. We found embroidery yarn was the best but don’t blow your balloon too big otherwise it will take you ages to wrap around the balloon. We cut our yarn into 60cm strips.
Step 2. Put your goodies into your deflated balloon. We chose Mini eggs as they were the perfect size. Then blow your balloon up and fasten it.
Step 3. Mix some PVA glue with water (not too much water) to form a thick liquid glue. Cover a 60cm piece of yarn with glue (this will get messy but that’s all part of the fun!)
Step 4. Wrap the yarn around the balloon. It’s better with 2 people. Then repeat steps 3 and 4 until your balloon is covered in yarn.
Step 5. This is how your balloon should look once you’ve finished wrapping it. Set it aside to dry. We left it overnight near a radiator.
Step 6. Pop the balloon. You’ll find that the balloon doesn’t pop like a normal balloon as the edges will be stuck to the yarn, it will deflate slowly.
And here’s the finished product. Pretty cool and the kids loved making it!!!
Happy Easter everybody.
