We have a lot of Kinder Surprise eggs lying around the house. I’m not a big fan of these as I consider it a waste of money (the small toys easily gets broken, the chocolate shell uneaten, and the yellow plastic eggs are just additional fillers for dump), but the kids love it and the husband indulge them once in awhile. I’ve thrown many of these eggs before then later I realized the kids can actually use it for playing.
Anyway, here’s an Easter craft that I’ve come up using Kinder Surprise eggs. At least, I’ve made them useful for this project which I call Easter Chick(en) Egg. (:
What you’ll need:
Kinder Surprise eggs
What to do:
1. Drill a hole into the bottom of the egg. Poke the skewer into the hole, about 1/2 inch inside.
2. Glue the googly eyes in the upper half of the egg.
3. Cut a small triangle out of paper/cloth, in my case I used a ribbon (the only orange thing I have), glue on the lower half of egg.
4. Cut 2 – 1.5 inches of yarn for the chick’s comb. Fold into two.
5. Glue the two pieces of folded yarn into the top of the egg.
6. Cover the skewer with yarn.
7. Make a small bow (I used 5 inch-length ribbon, pinched in the middle & secure it with yarn). Glue it below the egg, right where the skewer is poked inside.
You’re done! Say hello to Mrs. Hen!
What’s nice about this chicken is that you can open it and fill it inside with sweet treats for the little ones.
M&Ms, jelly beans, egg candies…. yummy!
You can use it as an Easter decor or place them around the garden with the treats inside and let the kids go hunt for them!
