Mr Men Egg Decorating

Posted on Mar 25, 2015

It is that time of year again ? the kids have their School Egg Decorating competition coming up!!! Red Ted (7rs) LOVES taking part and in the past, we have quickly whipped up something the days before and entered.. but it has taken us 3 years to figure out, that the winning Egg Decorating idea, usually is a bit more than ?just a decorated egg?.. it is a proper full on eggciting eggstravagant eggstrodinary egg decorating diorama or scene? so Red Ted has been planning this year?s entry SINCE LAST YEAR!! Yep.. this is a WHOLE YEAR IN THE MAKING!

We present you, with our Mr Men Egg Decorating Diorama!!!Mr Men Egg Decorating Diorama for the School Egg Decorating Competition

The story is about how Mr Bump bumps into the letter box (clumsy Mr Bump), whilst Mr Happy is about to be ambushed by Mr Tickle who is hiding be hind a tree?. we have a pom pom sunshine, with cotton wool clouds and birds in the trees and air.Mr Men Egg Diorama - decorating the box

Red Ted started by painting his shoe box in green and red.

I blew some eggs out for him and we painted them blue and yellow. We used enamel paints, because we had them and they give a lovely finish. If we hadn?t had enamel paints, we would have used acrylics. Last messy, but best for WHITE eggs, would have been to dye them using food dyes.

Later he decided that he also wanted a Mr Tickle, so we painted him a day later.

Mr Men Easter Eggs

Once all our eggs were dry, we looked at adding arms and details.  I added some of my enamel paints to a piece of cardboard, that Red Ted used to cut out arms and hands. Remember to add a little extra to your arm as a ?flap? that you can glue down onto your egg.

For Mr Tickle we used two pipecleaner pieces. We pricked holes into the side of him using thumbtacks and glued the arms in place.

For the faces, I encouraged Red Ted to go online and look at images of Mr Men to copy. These are the images he chose and copied. I LOVE how his Mr Bump face turned out!! Well done Red Ted!
Mr Men Egg Diorama - making the TP Roll Mail Box

We also made a Red English Post Box. We used a TP Roll, that I cut down for him and form the top using cuts and masking tape. Red Ted then painted it.. added the letter box ?slit? and a writing.

Finally, when everything was made, we started to stick things into place.  I did help with the sticking.
