A useful project to starve off boredom, great for those indoor “rain days” It won’t break the bank with materials and it’s a simple, fun way to keep kids involved.

I myself have fond childhood memories of watching my mother create beautiful egg decorations. Use cotton string and balloons for a creative way to keep kids involved and happy on an indoor day.

I would watch as Mom wrapped brightly colored cotton and glue around the balloons and set them to dry. Next morning I would get to pop the balloon to reveal the delicate cotton egg decoration. I have carried on the tradition with my children adding beautiful knit flowers. Have Fun!
