My kids just love opening Easter eggs to find a surprise inside. I thought it would be fun to create something that I used to make when I was a child with Kenzie - the treat filled string egg! This is a real hands on craft that gets messy so make sure to cover your work space if you are a clean freak. The end result will be worth it as you can use it as decor until ready to indulge.
- embroidery floss
- Elmer's white glue
- small individually wrapped chocolates
1. Mix together equal parts glue and water until a thick liquid forms.
2. Cut the embroidery floss into sections of about 1.5-2 ft long.
3. Stretch out each balloon and pop in a few chocolates. Kenzie loves the cookies and cream easter egg chocolates which are the perfect size.
4. Gently blow up the balloon to a size that you like and then tie a know. We decided to make medium size eggs so that they could be displayed.
5. Take a piece of floss and dip into the glue mixture. Wrap it around the balloon, criss-crossing as you go. Repeat until fully wrapped leaving openings to see the chocolate eggs inside.
6. Allow it to dry overnight (at least 24 hours) and then pop the balloon and allow the candies to pop out.
7. Carefully pull the deflated balloon out of the egg and enjoy!
