Humpty Dumpty Easter Egg
Submitted by Maria Guerra
To make: Take a raw egg, strain the egg by poking a small hole, wash and let dry.
Wrap a black (any color will also work) chenille pipe cleaner around the middle of egg and dab on glue.
Cut strips of paper, cardstock, etc., with shearing scissors for strips of
paper arms, legs and crown. You can paint egg different colors with paint, watercolors, crayons,
etc. Use tiny round pieces of chenille, googly eyes and permanent marker for
eyes. Draw nose with marker and/or permanent markers around the googly
eyes. Glue eyes and strips of paper in place. Place Humpty in a picture frame, shadow box,
cardboard box, and create your own background with a fence made of paper
or toothpicks. Use your imagination. If the eggs crack the better for the Humpty Dumpty had a great fall effect.
Congratulations to Maria, she has won a $50
