Bring out your creativity with these adorable Easter Egg Heads.They are easy to make – just think about the possibilities!  And kids think the wiggle eyes are especially funny! Check out your local craft store or a dollar store to get the wiggly eyes and keep your eyes opened for things you can use for hair, hats, etc – get creative and you will love the results!

Materials:

  • Boiled eggs
  • 3-D paint or glitter glue, in a variety of colors
  • White craft glue
  • Wiggle eyes, in any size
  • Cooling rack or film canister lids
  • Marker
  • Mini bowl (optional)
  • Tweezers (optional)
  • Empty egg cartons

Directions:

You will need to decorate only one side of the egg at a time. Let the eggs dry either on egg cartons turned upside down, on a cooling rack or film canister lid. Decorate other side when first side is dry.

  1. Place egg into an empty egg carton for stability.
  2. Use glitter glue or 3-D paint to “draw” on hair. This will need to dry for several hours.
  3. If you wish to add a bow, place a small construction paper or ribbon bow into the 3-D paint or glitter glue hair before it dries all the way.
  4. Decide where you want to place the wiggle eyes and glue them in place.
  5. Add a nose by gluing on a miniature pom pom
  6. Draw on a mouth with a marker.
  7. Place on a decorative plate, an Easter basket, or make an arrangement for your table.
  8.
