What You’ll Need
- Large white eggs
- Acrylic paint (light purple, tan, black, white, orange, and pink)
- Black felt pen
- Cardstock (light purple, pink, blue, black, and red)
- Small paintbrushes
- Hot glue
- Small flowers and leaves
How To Make It
- Tap the top of an egg with a knife to form a crack and gently peel off the top shell. Pour out the egg contents in a bowl. Gently wash the inside of the egg shell thoroughly. Let the eggs dry upside down while you bake or cook a favorite recipe with the egg.
- Once dry, begin to paint the egg shells.
- For Eeyore, paint the entire egg purple and let dry. Then paint the bottom portion tan. For Donald, give the entire egg a coat of white.
- Cut out your paper pieces. For Eeyore, cut out purple and pink for his ears, arms from purple, and a purple strip for the base. For Donald, cut out a white strip for the base, arms from white, a red bow, and his hat from blue and black.
- Use a hot glue gun to attach Eeyore’s ears onto the sides of the egg. Glue on Donald’s hat and bow.
- With a black felt pen, draw on the details of Eeyore and the eyes on Donald. You can draw an outline with a pencil first to help guide you. Use black paint for Eeyore’s hair. Use orange paint for Donald’s nose and pink for his cheeks.
- Wrap the paper bases around the bottom of the eggs and glue the ends together. Then glue the arms onto the bottom of the egg.
- For the optional headband, cut out a strip of white and yellow paper to fit over the head. Next, cut out bunny ears and a yellow tuft of hair and glue behind each headband. Use a felt pen to draw the eyes and nose. Glue the headband together and place on top of each egg.
- Insert small flowers and leaves inside the vase with a little bit of water.
All cutting and hot gluing should be done by an adult.
