This is a neat craft project you can make before Ostara. Hide these eggs for your kids to find, and then when they crack them open, they can find the treasure hidden inside!

Difficulty: Average
Time Required: Varied

Here's How:

  1. You'll need:

    • 1 C. all-purpose flour
    • ½ C. salt
    • ¼ C. clean sand
    • 1 C. used coffee grounds
    • ¾ C. warm water
    • Crystals or gemstones
    • Non-stick cooking spray
    • Acrylic paints in your favorite colors

  2. Blend flour, salt, sand and coffee grounds together. Gradually add the water, and knead until you've got a thick, gritty dough. Spray a crystal lightly with non-stick cooking spray, and place it in the center of a small scoop of dough. Shape the dough around the crystal to form an egg shape. Bake the eggs at 350 for about 15 minutes, and allow to cool. Once they've cooled, they should be nice and hard, like a rock. Paint the eggs, and allow paint to dry.

  3. Hide the eggs on Ostara, and let your kids crack them open to reveal the hidden crystals!
