Egg decorating - Hungry Caterpillar and Superheroes

It's that time of year again where the school holds the annual Easter fete, the Mini Mes get the chance to decorate eggs at home to compete for a prize, and I have the worry of transporting their masterpieces to school without cracking them on the way!
 
Jamster's Humpty Dumpty egg won from a previous year which he was so pleased about; he had put a lot of effort into it and he received lots of delicious, chocolate goodies.
It's nice to win but it's also a fun activity and gets the kids to be creative at no or little cost. They really enjoy getting involved.
 
Being a Superhero fan Jamster went for Batman and Spiderman, his favourite two characters...
 
 
He used felt tips to colour the Spiderman egg and some sticky foam as eyes. Batman was made with silver face paint to colour it, a black bag as the cape, mask and pants and sticky foam as the eyes with a card badge.
 
Minxy went for a Very Hungry Caterpillar, creating a glittery home for it too...
 
 
She coloured one egg red and a second one green for the body using felt tip pens. She added sticky coloured foam as eyes and straws for the antennae. The home she created was a bug catcher box that she covered (literally) in glitter and sequins and filled with green shredded tissue paper.
 
 
Minxy won first place for hers!
 
 
We are also entering our eggs into the Polarn O. Pyret competition to win a soft bunny and a £50 voucher which you can join in here: Polarn O. Pyret Easter comp
