Craft: Nest Egg

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

This clay eggshell is just the thing for storing coins, trinkets, or tiny keepsakes.


  • Balloon
  • Self-drying clay
  • Butter knife


  1. Inflate a balloon until it's about 4 inches in diameter.
  2. Mold a fist-sized ball of self-drying clay around three quarters of the balloon, leaving the top open.
  3. Use a butter knife to give the clay a cracked edge.
  4. Once the clay begins to set, pop and remove the balloon.
  5. Allow the egg to harden completely before using it.
