These Easter egg buddies are insanely fun to make – what starts out as a cute decorated Easter egg quickly turns into a surprise friend lurking within the shell, waiting to make your acquaintance.
And all you need is paper, markers, and a pencil. Life is good when crafts are this simple.
Grab your letter-sized paper and fold it twice. I folded the top down to just about an inch over the bottom edge, then folded the top back up. You can experiment with where you want to fold it, and you can see in my photos and video approximately where I folded.
Draw your egg on the front of the folded paper. You can trace my egg printout if you like, or freehand your eggs. Because I am the best thing ever, I have included for you:
- A downloadable egg to trace – I printed this out at 60%
- A downloadable pre-drawn egg to fold if you don’t want to draw your own egg
Outline the egg in Black marker, and add whatever inside details you like: face, egg babies, creepy monsters!
Close the egg up and decorate the outside. (Put a piece of paper inside the back of the fold so the marker doesn’t bleed through.)
Here Are Some of Mine
This is obviously influenced by my surprise ferocious beings project, so check it out if you want more ideas!
