Farm Animals Egg Craft

Farm Animals Egg Craft

With Easter just around the corner now my news feeds on social media have been full of wonderful Easter/Spring Sensory Bins, Egg activities and lots of wonderful new books to accompany these set ups too! Leading up to Easter you have no doubt prepared lots of lovely crafts and activities for the children but what about after Easter? Suddenly you have hundreds of eggs. Eggs that the children have loved playing with over the last couple of weeks, it seems silly to pop them away until next year. So today I want to share with you a lovely way of using eggs on the build up to Easter and afterwards too. 

Many settings and families will be enjoying a farm topic over the next few weeks. It's a lovely time of year to cover this topic. Lots of lovely new baby animals are being born and visits to the farm encourage the children to be so hands on now which is fabulous! Holding baby chicks, bottle feeding the baby pigs and sheep.

You will need:
Wooden or Paper Mache Eggs
Acrylic Paints
Paint Brush
Hot Glue Gun
Black Permanent Marker

Farm Animals Egg Craft

Begin by painting the wooden eggs. You will need to give each egg 2-3 coats of paint. Allow the paint to dry fully between coats. You will also need to download and print the templates, which are available at the bottom of the page for a free download.

Cut out the template and trace as needed onto the card. Cut each piece out. Older children with good scissor control will really enjoy making these too! 
Glue the pieces of the ears together, add a small piece of feather to the ducks head and use a black marker pen to draw links on the straw hat.

Paint the facial features onto each egg and don't forget to add character such as spots on the cow. Glue the ears onto each eggs and the straw hat onto the farmer etc.
Use a pencil to draw on your eyes and when you are happy with how they look use your marker to trace over the lines. 

Your eggs are finished. Use them for decorations. Add them to your small worlds. Use them at story time to help bring your stories to life. Lots of lovely potential.
