Directions

  1. Step 1

    Print and cut out stickers for the hair, eyes, and mouth pieces.

  2. Step 2

    Very carefully, peel the paper backing from Kai-lan's bangs only (leave the paper on the rest of the hair) and from the "tab" area on each ear.

  3. Step 3

    With the egg in a horizontal position, apply the bangs and then the ear tabs.

  4. Step 4

    Peel the backing from the eyes and mouth. Apply them to the egg. With the black marker, draw a nose and eyebrows.

  5. Step 5

    Cut a 1 1/2- x 6-inch strip from red or pink construction paper or cardstock. Curl it to create a ring and staple or glue it closed. Rest Kai-lan on her stand!
