Our kids are getting into collage (especially after getting corrugated paper for Christmas) and we were definitely inspired by Art Camp LA’s beautiful Lunar New Year Roosters: (https://www.artcampla.com/new-blog/2017/1/23/year-of-the-rooster-project There are tonnes of goodies there!)  We decided to make eggs with neon colours- something a bit different than the traditional pastels!
