Jumping Bean Easter Eggs

This Easter craft started out as one thing but changed into something else while making it. Did you ever have jumping beans? Well these eggs started out as wobble eggs, but as I was decorating them, I suddenly remembered the jumping beans. I remembered how much fun they were so changed some of the wobble eggs into jumping bean Easter eggs.

Make sure that you follow my Easter board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own jumping bean Easter eggs you will need:

  • Plastic Easter eggs
  • Plasticine/play dough/ Blue Tac etc
  • Sharpies
  • Washi tape (optional)

Make a ball out of the plasticine/ play dough/ Blue Tac and put it inside the egg. This is going to act as the weight.

Close up the egg and decorate it with sharpies or washi tape.

The challenge with jumping beans is to try and get them to roll down your arm. It is a little harder to get the eggs to roll all the way down your arm as they are bigger. But it is a fun challenge to set for kids.

If you wanted to make them into wobble eggs simply press the plasticine into the base of the egg.

I made jumping bean Easter eggs for EC and YC and a wobble egg for BB, he made his own wobble egg.

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
