“Eggs-tra” Special Eggs that your little ones will love (and can make)!   Leave a comment

“Eggs-tra” Special Eggs

Does your little ones love to make dyed Easter eggs but the mess created takes more time to clean-up than the quality time you had making them? If so, try these adorable “Eggs-tra” special eggs from Parents Magazine http://www.parents.com/holiday/easter/crafts/dye-free-easter-eggs/.

Funny Farm: Bunny

What you’ll need: Felt, marker, scissors, craft glue, blown-out or ceramic egg, small white pom-pom, extra small pink pom-pom, pink yarn, hair spray, bottle cap

Make it: To make the outer ear shapes, trace your child’s thumb onto pink felt twice. To make the inner ear shapes, trace your child’s pinky finger onto white felt twice. Cut all of the ear shapes out, then glue the inner ear shape on top of the outer ear shape, making sure to leave about ¼” at the bottom unattached, and set aside to dry. In the meantime, cut three 1-inch pieces of yarn and spray with hair spray to stiffen; let dry. Rest the egg in the bottle cap and apply two small dots of glue to the top, about ½” apart, and gently separate the unattached part of each bunny ear and press down on the glue dots. When yarn is dry, twist the pieces together in the middle and glue to the front of the egg, about halfway down. Attach the extra small pink pompom on top of the yarn whiskers for a nose. Glue the white pompom to the back of the egg for a tail. Use a marker to draw eyes on the bunny, then draw a mouth. (Tip: draw the letter J then add a loop on the other side.) Leave the bunny on the bottle cap to dry overnight.

Funny Farm: Chick

What you’ll need: Felt, marker, scissors, craft glue, blown-out or ceramic egg, bottle cap

Make it: Download, print, and cut out the feather templates. Trace templates onto felt and cut out. Glue the diamond-shaped piece of felt onto the top of the egg. Apply a thin line of glue along the bottom of the pointy piece and press along the length of the diamond-shaped piece; let dry. Cut a small triangle from felt, bend in half, and glue the bottom half onto the front of the egg for a beak. Draw two small dots above the beak for eyes. Let dry completely.

Funny Farm: Bird

What you’ll need: Felt, marker, scissors, craft glue, blown-out or ceramic egg, bottle cap

Make it: Download, print, and cut out the wing and tail-feather templates. Trace templates onto felt and cut out. Use scissors to fringe the edges of the wings and tail feathers as shown. Mount the small tail feather on top of the large tail feather and glue to the bottom of the egg. Sit egg on bottle cap so that tail feathers are sticking up and attach the wings to either side using glue. Cut a small triangle from felt for the beak and glue in place. Draw two small dots above the beak for eyes. Let dry completely.
