I have been teaching the girls about the Imperial Eggs and the story of Carl Faberge. I had a chance to see just a handful of these eggs on display when I visited the Armoury Museum at the Kremlin years ago. Most of the 42 surviving Imperial Eggs are in private collections, but some are on public display around the world.
One of my favourites of the Imperial eggs - which I have only seen in books - is the Lilies of the Valley Egg.

For our Faberge-inspired masterpieces, we used styrofoam eggs, paint, glitter confetti and craft jewel stickers.
The girls painted the eggs. To dry, just stick a tooth pick on the end of the egg and use a scrap piece of styrofoam as a drying space.
Then apply your bling!
and stand back and admire your artistry!
