Gumball Machine Easter Egg Bonnie Scorer March 23, 2020 Activities, Spring #2 2020 We made a gumball machine pumpkin for Halloween and the kids wanted to make one for Easter as well. My fondest memory of a gumball machine was one that my dad won at the Community’s Fall Festival where whoever estimated closest to the total amount of gumballs got to win the machine and contents- my sisters and I loved it! (Although I think my candy-loving father was just as excited!) This is a playful way to decorate an egg and we’d love to see your ideas as well- please tag us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/make_it_your_own_/ Materials Printable Gum Ball Machine Parts gumball machines Craft or wooden egg (Find wooden eggs here: https://woodpeckerscrafts.com/search.php?search_query=egg§ion=product) Non-toxic stamp pad or markers Small bead Glue We always find these items useful too: Directions Create gumballs with the tip of your finger pad applied to your stamp pad and then to your craft or wooden egg. (You could also use non toxic markers and draw them too or use non-toxic paint). Allow your gumballs to dry. Print and cut out the gumball machine pieces. Glue them with the tabs. Since we used craft eggs we glued the top piece onto our egg and added a tiny bead. Display your gumball machine for Easter! If you have Easter decorating ideas, we’d love to see them!

Safety Notes We suggest that you use a tray and a smock to protect your clothing and surfaces. Use scissors and a glue gun with care and direct, adult supervision. Beads can be a choking hazard, therefore be sure to keep them out of the reach of children ages 0-3 years of age or those that tend to put things into their mouths.
