Directions

  1. Before You Begin

    To make the stand for your Nick Jr. eggs, 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

    Cut two 2-inch triangles and one 1-inch triangle from the brown felt using the Dora Egg Template as a template. Round the edges and cut off the top points.

  3. Step 2

    Glue the triangles on the egg to create Dora's hairstyle. Cut a small indent across the "bangs." Cut two 1/2-inch lengths of yarn and glue on as a cowlick.

  4. Step 3

    Cut out paper eyes. Color them with the brown marker. Glue the eyes on the egg.

  5. Step 4

    Using the peach marker, draw Dora's mouth and nose.

  6. Step 5

    Paint the egg stand pink.

  7. Step 6

    Cut a 1- by 2-inch rectangle from the purple felt. Fold it in half and glue down to make Backpack. Glue on two strips of felt for the strap.

  8. Step 7

    Glue on a pink felt "button."

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