Paper Mache Easter centerpiece

Creating a Paper Mache shape out of newspaper and glue using a plastic bowl smeared with petroleum jelly.

The bowls popped out from their form and left to dry...they were then trimmed and given shape. The children then painted in white and pastel acrylic to cover the newspaper print!

Decorating the bowl in kite paper mosaic.

Adding embellishments to create cute bunnies or fluffy chicks, including googly eyes, whiskers, foam ears or beaks, pom poms and feathers amongst others! Finally,the bowls were filled in straw and topped with chocolate Easter eggs!!
