These monster eggs are as much fun to make as they are to look at! All you need is a bag of different size googly eyes from the craft store, glue and Sharpie markers for your kids. You can dye the eggs different colors ahead of time so that they’re ready to be decorated.
Once your kids are ready to decorate have them glue on a single or multiple eyes and then use their imagination to draw around the eyes to create different silly monster faces. For younger kids you might want to have them draw some practice monster faces on pieces of paper so that decorating their eggs will be easier and more fun.
