Directions

  1. Before You Begin

    To make the stand for your egg, cut a cardboard egg carton into individual cells, turn each cell upside down, and cut an opening in the top just big enough to secure the base of the egg.

  2. Step 1

    Paint the egg pale blue. Let it dry.

  3. Step 2

    Using the Blue Egg Template as a guide, cut ears from the pale blue felt. Cut medium-blue dots of felt and glue them in the center of ears.

  4. Step 3

    Glue the ears on Blue's head.

  5. Step 4

    Cut more medium-blue felt dots and glue them on Bob's face.

  6. Step 5

    Cut oval-shaped eyes from the construction paper, color the eyes with the black marker, and glue them on the egg.

  7. Step 6

    Using the medium-blue paint, paint on Blue's nose. Highlight with white paint.

  8. Step 7

    Paint the egg stand pale blue.

  9. Step 8

    Cut out a pale blue felt paw shape and five medium-blue felt dots.

  10. Step 9

    Glue the dots on the felt paw shape.

  11. Step 10

    Glue Blue's paw print on an egg cell.

Tip: While the kids are painting the eggs, cut out the felt and paper, so they'll be ready to glue on once the eggs are dry.
