Are you looking to bring a little fun to the breakfast table? Egg Buddies are nutritious, silly, and fun for kids to make and eat. Serve them with fruit, toast, and orange juice for a delicious, easy breakfast.
What a fun way to decorate eggs! Every time I open the refrigerator, I giggle at the sight of our Egg Buddies. My favorite part of them are their whimsical pants which make it look as if they are standing up with round little bellies.
Best of all, this activity is easy for little hands! It’s a fun boredom buster and a creative way to decorate Easter eggs.
To make Egg Buddies you will need:
- Dry, room-temperature hard boiled eggs
- Adhesive wiggly eyes
- Yarn and/or pom poms
- Sharpie marker
- Egg pants or egg cups
- Glue Dots
Use the Sharpie to draw faces on the eggs. We thought it was fun to experiment with drawing different feelings.
Secure the wiggly eyes to the eggs. Stretch Glue Dots over the eggs where you wish to place yarn or pom poms.
TIP: The wiggly eyes and Glue Dots don’t stick very well to cold eggs. Use dry, room temperature eggs for best results.
Use yarn or pom poms to create “hair” for your Egg Buddies! My youngest son used black pom poms to make a mohawk on his “angry” egg!

Egg Buddies are so silly ¦and that’s why kids love them!
For safety, don’t forget to remove all wiggly eyes, hair, and pom poms before eating the eggs!
