Critter Easter Eggs

 

Easter eggs have a tendency of being drab on the outside, but fun on the inside. Sure, you can buy snazzy eggs for a price, but it’s always more when there’s a little D.I.Y involved.

Supplies:

  • Plastic Easter Eggs
  • Wiggly Eggs
  • Felt marker
  • Foam pieces
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Steps:

  • Cut out various ears, feet, and other shapes from the foam pieces.
  • Glue the cut out foam pieces and wiggly eyes to the plastic eggs. If you still want to place goodies inside the egg, make sure to not place anything over the opening.
  • If you want these critters to stand on their own, make sure to adhere some feet to the bottom.
  • Draw on eyeballs, monocles, and mustaches using the felt marker.

Notes:

  • Try and find self-adhesive wiggly eyes if possible. I had a hard time gluing those with plastic backing to the eggs. Either that or use a stronger glue than Elmer’s.
  • Speaking of glue, ears and other parts that aren’t glued flat onto the egg may be delicate so handle with care.  Last year, I shipped a few of these bad boys to friends and was told that some arrived dissembled.
