To Make Egg Buddies You Will Need:

  • Dry, room-temperature hard boiled eggs*
  • Adhesive wiggly eyes
  • Yarn and/or pom poms
  • Sharpie marker
  • Egg pants or egg cups
  • Glue Dots

*Hard Boiled Egg Tip:  I have used an egg timer that you place into the water for the last 10 years or so and it is a complete lifesaver when you forget and look at the time when you put your eggs in the water!

Step 3

Secure the wiggly eyes to the eggs.

Step 4

Stretch Glue Dots over the eggs where you wish to place yarn or pom poms.

Step 5

The wiggly eyes and Glue Dots don’t stick very well to cold eggs. Use dry, room temperature eggs for best results.

For safety, don’t forget to remove all wiggly eyes, hair, and pom poms, or awesome animated egg friends stickers, before eating the eggs! Obviously, young children will need additional supervision with this and any food craft.

You could also use a rubber stamp and food coloring to make a face too.
