This spring break we have been having a crafting bonanza. My kids LOVE arts and crafts and we have been coming up with some masterpieces.
This craft is easy and cheap. It’s perfect for the busy mom or the non-crafting mom.

You’ll need Liquid Starch (I use School Specialty Sta-Flo Liquid Starch – 1/2 gallon which I finally found at Walmart after searching a few other stores first. It is also available at Amazon at the link provided.)
A tray or piece cardboard.
Line tray or cardboard with plastic wrap. (I use these Carlisle CT1216-03 Black Cafe® Standard Tray, 16 5/16″ x 12 1/16″
for arts and crafts. Clean up is a breeze with these. I got them here because I could not find them in stores.)
Cut out an egg shape frame from a piece of construction paper
Pour a dollop of liquid starch in the middles and paint the inside and construction paper frame with it.
Tear pieces of tissue paper and place them inside the egg frame.
Brush on more liquid starch after all the tissue paper has been added to make sure it is all wet.
Let dry. (We left ours overnight.)
Once completely dry, gently peel away the plastic wrap. Place against the window and enjoy the pretty colors!
