making eggs with tissue paper and glue

Something about a bowl full of tissue paper pieces really makes me smile.

This is a great project to do with the kids. You just need tissue paper cut into small squares, glue, a paintbrush, and either card stock cut into the shape of an egg or step it up with a real blown out egg. Glue the tissue paper on. (If doing a paper egg, let pieces overhang the edges of the egg and trim them off after the glue dries.) Overlap colors.  Paint glue over top of the tissue paper to achieve that sort of translucent layered look. Add some fine glitter for a little sparkle. Let it dry.
