Unicorns are our thing and after we got done making the Unicorn Paper Plate craft and playing the Unicorn Memory Match game, we wanted to keep going with our unicorn theme. So, we made some unicorn eggs!
The thing that we liked most about these unicorn eggs is that they’re not just for Easter. Sure, they make the most adorable Easter egg crafts ever, but, if you screw a small metal hook into the top, they also make fabulous unicorn Christmas ornaments!

While the could definitely be made by little ones with a lot of supervision, they’re probably best for tweens, teens, and adults. The consensus was that we’re not sure the little ones would have enough patience or fine motor control to make them from start to finish.
We’d love to see how your unicorn eggs turn out, so snap a photo and share it with us in the comments below or tag us on Instagram @MamaTeaches!
