This is an oldie, but a goodie -- a super fun project to create beautiful decorations for a festive Spring or Easter table. Do note: it's pretty messy (ie., our fingers got pretty much covered in glue), so you might want to plan accordingly and cover your counter or table before you begin, and have some wet paper towels ready. And I have to say, the mess is worth it -- we were really amazed at how great these turned out.
Blow up your balloons. Remember, the size of your balloon will be the size of your egg -- so unless you're thinking of ostrich eggs, you don't need them to be too big. (Do you have one of these balloon-pumper things? They're awesome, in case you ever find yourself needing a ton of balloons for a birthday or a project like this or this.)
Dip the first strand of thread into the glue. Holding the thread over the cup of glue, pull the thread through your finger and thumb to spread the glue along the whole length of the thread. (This is where it will get messy! But my daughter LOVED it, and I got to show her how fun it is to rub glue on your hands, let it dry and peel it off! Weird, I know. Did anyone else ever do that??)
