Materials

  • Craft knife
  • Large blue plastic egg, about 3 1/2 inches tall
  • Self-adhesive wiggly eyes
  • Yellow construction paper
  • Craft glue
  • Red pipe cleaner
  • Yellow felt or construction paper
  • Blue foam board or construction paper
  • Clear adhesive tape or a stapler
  • White felt or construction paper
Tip: We used a plastic egg. It's larger and saves time. But you can paint your own egg if you wish.

Directions

  1. Step 1: Before You Begin

    Parents, use the craft knife to bore a tiny hole in the top of the wide end of the egg. Later, the whirligig on Pablo's beanie will be inserted through this hole.

  2. Step 2: For the Face

    With the wide part of the egg at the top, have kids press on two wiggly eyes. From the yellow construction paper, cut a small diamond shape, and fold it in half to make the beak. Add glue to the back of the one half of the folded diamond and have kids press it onto the face close to the eyes.

  3. Step 3: For the Beanie

    With the red pipe cleaner, twist a tiny figure-8 shape at the end, then kids can poke it through the hole in the egg. Inside, twist the pipe cleaner, and if desired, glue it to keep it from wobbling. From the yellow felt, cut a 1-inch-round circle. Cut from the outside of the circle to its center point only. Slip the slit around the pipe cleaner, and glue the circle to the egg.

  4. Step 4: For the Collar

    From the foam or construction paper, cut an 8- by 1-inch strip. Create a ring, overlapping the ends and stapling or gluing them in place. Cut out a little bowtie and glue it to the collar. Set Pablo inside.

Tip: More than one child? Have one cut out the pieces and one glue.
