For this easy Easter craft, you'll want to start by making your fluffy slime. If you're not working on a counter space you can easily clean up, you might want to cover your work surface with a plastic table cover to help protect from any messes (since you'll be working with food coloring).
Empty a 4-oz. bottle of Tacky Glue into a bowl and mix with 1 cup of water.
Stir in food coloring along with shaving cream and lotion.
Slowly add Borax solution until the slime begins to form and pulls away from the bowl. Knead it with your hands to make sure it's nice and mixed!
Now it's time to decorate your eggs so you can stuff them with slime!
Cut ears and feet from craft foam. If you're making chicks, you can cut the beaks from foam as well.
Use Tacky Glue to glue foam pieces in place on eggs. Let dry.
Glue the googly eyes in place and a small pompom for the nose and tail. Use your permanent marker to draw on a mouth, whiskers and any other features you like!
Stuff your cute little bunny eggs with slime and this easy Easter craft is ready to hop into some fun!
