e is for egg craft

How to Make the ‘e’ for egg:

  1. Cut out a lowercase ‘e’ from a piece of a yellow foam sheet. To make the letters go along with the uppercase letters we’ve done in the past, this letter was cut from a piece of foam that was about 2” x 4” ~ small, but oh so cute!
  2. Cut out an egg shape from white foam sheet {about 2” x 4”}.
  3. Cut the egg in half using a zig-zag cut so that it looks like the egg has cracked.
  4. Cut a small triangle out of the orange foam sheet to use a beak. Add a line for the beak opening using the pen.
  5. Open the egg up {as pictured above} and glue the lowercase ‘e’ on top of the egg shell.
  6. Add a the beak, feathers, and the wiggly eye.
