How to Make a Cookie Sheet Countdown

Super excited to introduce all of you to Lyndsey from Lyndsey’s Craft Spot.  I first “met” her through an online swap group & then realized I knew her hubby from my college days.  {I know what you’re thinking and NO, he & I never dated!}  πŸ˜‰  She is darling & we are so excited she is here!  Thanks, Lynds!

Hey bloggy friends.. can I just take a minute to say how seriously STOKED I am to be guest blogging at Lolly Jane. I think these girlies are amazing.. who doesn’t right? Thanks for this chance to be a part of your coolness πŸ™‚
 
Ok on to the good stuff:
I wanted to create a tutorial that would be SUPER easy.. so I came up with this:
 
The Cookie Sheet Easter Egg Countdown:

 

So here is a list of things you will need to gather to make one:
-a cookie sheet {I got mine from the dollar store}
– spray paint {totally optional-I wanted to add a little color.. you could also use scrap book paper to decorate your cookie sheet}
-modge podge
– 12 plastic easter eggs {again from the dollar store}
– 12 magnets {I get mine at Roberts because I can use the 40% off coupon and get them for around a $1.00}
– vinyl for the numbers and the words at the top..stickers would work fine too!!
-hot glue gun
 
Ok first thing I did was spray paint the cookie sheet- sorry I did not take a photo of this process.. but we all know how to spray paint right? Well don’t ask my husband that question- he always asks me how I manage to get so much of it on me and I honestly have no idea!! πŸ™‚
 

While the paint was drying I took my eggs and printed out some vinyl numbers-again stickers would also work for this part, or even a sharpie.

 

Then I hot glued a small magnet to the back of the egg, like so…


Here is my cookie sheet all pretty and painted. I used my Cricut to print out vinyl that I applied to the top. Stickers would work for this too, I have seen some really cute letter stickers at Michaels. But I won’t lie to you, having a vinyl machine makes this part a lot easier.. hey Mother’s Day is coming up, ladies πŸ™‚

 
Then I just stuck the easter eggs on the cookie sheet and WAA LAA!!

I plan on filling the eggs with little activities that my kids can do to help them countdown the days until Easter. 

Here are a few fun ideas I came up with :

 

*Easter scavenger hunt
*Play pin the nose on the bunny
*Make a treat for neighbors
*Make tissue paper eggs
*Color Easter pictures
*Make Easter cards for Grandparents
*Play Hop Scotch
*Color Easter eggs
*Watch Bambi-it was the onl
y Easter-ish movie I could think of!
*Easter egg hunt
 
 

 

Hope you enjoy my tutorial. I would love to see what ideas you creative girlies come up with!!

Thanks again, Lyndsey!

  1. Love it! but since I'm too lazy to get a cookie sheet and spray paint it, I'm just going to put the eggs on my fridge. Maybe make a little sign out of paper that they all sit on top of to frame it out. Love to have a use for those extra eggs!
