Why not add some egg-citement to your Easter egg decorating this year by creating an egg bunny? They are perfect fun-filled breakfast idea.
What you'll need:
- Hard-boiled egg dyed pink
- 2 medium wiggle eyes
- 2 medium white pom-poms
- 2 medium pink pom-poms (optional)
- 7 miniature pink pom-poms
- ¼ of a cardboard tube
- Pink paint
- 3" x 3" piece of pink construction paper
- Glue stick
- White craft glue
How to make it:
- Dye hard-boiled egg pink, according to the instructions on the dye package.
- Paint the cardboard tube pink and set aside to dry.
- Place pink egg in the cardboard tube.
- Cut two long ears from pink construction paper. Glue the bottom of both ears onto the back of the egg. (See photo.)
- Use white craft glue to attach wiggle eyes to the front of the egg. (See photo.)
- Below the eyes, glue two white pom-poms next to each other to make the bunny's cheeks. Just above the two white pom-poms, glue one of the miniature pink pom-poms to make the nose. (See photo.)
- Lift the egg out of the cardboard tube and lay it onto its back on the cardboard tube. Allow the glue to dry. (See photo.)
- To make the feet, cut an oval from the pink paper, about 1.5" high x .75" wide. Cut the oval in half width-wise.
- Glue three miniature pom-poms to the curve of each foot. (See photo.)
- After egg has dried, set it on a towel while you glue the feet to the front of the cardboard tube. Place the egg back in the tube upright.
OPTIONAL: You can also glue two additional medium-sized pink pom-poms on either side of the bunny to make paws.
- Instead of a boiled egg, use a plastic egg.
- You can make a tube yourself out of construction paper to eliminate the painting step.
- For a more simplified foot, skip the miniature pom-poms and draw on the toes with a marker.
