Easter may be around the corner but this craft can be created & shared anytime of the year! We were recently invited to a “Spring Fun with Nintendo” virtual event to celebrate warmer weather and the newest offerings from Nintendo. We also got crafty with Nintendo DIYer expert GandaKris, who taught us how to create these eggs and she shared some painting tips!
DIY Nintendo Easter Eggs
How To Shape An Egg
- Take a palm size amount of your air drying clay. Feel free to take more or less.
- Roll the clay in your hand to create a smooth round ball.
- Pinch the top of one side to create the point – like an egg.
- Continue to shape your egg until you get your desired look. I created a flat bottom so it doesn’t roll.
- Let it dry (overnight) to fully harden.
- Once its completely dry, PAINT!
Have fun creating your desired shapes and sizes. You can see below – I didn’t get too pointy. I also turned a point into ears for Pikachu!
The kids and I had fun painting our eggs. The Crayola Aryclic Paint was so easy to use and it dried so quickly. Which was helpful since we painted multiple coats on our eggs. If you only do one coat, the clay will dry out the paint and your color will disappear. Also, since Nintendo characters are colorful and needs more than one color to design an egg, you’ll need to wait patiently before applying different paint colors. If you don’t wait for the paint to dry – the colors will blend together.
For small details like the eyes and mouth, I used a toothpick! Below is Caiden painting his Meta Knight Easter egg.
To get the gray paint – mix black + white. And you can see he used the toothpick for the eyes.
Pink for Kirby – mix red + white.
Green for Yoshi Egg – mix blue + yellow.
I Googled images to help create my eggs. While my boys didn’t bother and just went with the flow. LOL
