Directions

  1. Step 1: For the Face

    Using the Diego Egg Template, have kids cut out the eyes and mouth. Glue them onto the egg. With the black marker, draw eyebrows and a nose.

  2. Step 2: For the hair

    From the fun fur, cut a 4- by 2-inch strip. With scissors, create jagged cuts for the bangs. Glue the hair onto the head, draping it across the top of the egg.

  3. Step 3: For the ears

    From the orange felt, cut two small crescent shapes. Drag their cut edges through a dot of glue and press them onto the side of the egg.

  4. Step 4: For the safari vest

    From green craft foam or construction paper, cut a 1- by 7-inch strip. Cut a small tab at its center (for beneath Diego's chin). Curl the strip and staple or tape it closed. Set Diego in the loop.
