How To Make It
1. Boil the eggs and let cool.
2. On the bottom side of eggs, glue googly eyes or using a blue tipped marker make eyes.
3. Cut a very small piece of pink art foam for a nose and glue it on the appropriate place.
4. Cut little feet out of white art foam (2 or 4—more for stability than accuracy) and glue to bottom of egg, with eyes facing forward. Hold until dry.
5. Cut 2 small ovals of white art foam (half-inch) and 2 slightly smaller ovals of pink art foam.
6. Glue each smaller pink oval in the middle of each bigger white one to form ear. Hold until dry.
7. Bend the tip of one side of each glued-together oval 90 degrees and then glue bent-tip sides down to appropriate spot over the eyes—pink side facing outward, diagonally down. This should expose the lamb's inner ear along with the white outer ear.
8. Glue cotton balls all along the rest of the egg, starting immediately behind ears. Leave imaginary facial circle free of cotton, but cover everything else. Remember to put cotton between the open slants of the ears so the lamb's ears appear to be coming out of the wool.
- You can use pink construction paper instead of art foam for the nose and inner ears.
- Make the lamb's wool (cotton balls) as thick as you'd like.
- Instead of feet, you could glue cotton balls all the way around the underside of the egg to keep it stable on a flat surface.
