How to Make Egg Buddies 

Making egg buddies is 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

*Hard Boiled Egg Tip:  I have used an egg timer that you place into the water for the last 10 years or so and it is a complete lifesaver when you forget and look at the time when you put your eggs in the water!

Faces to Draw on Eggs

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.

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!

Aren’t we cute in our egg pants?

For safety, don’t forget to remove  all wiggly eyes, hair, and pom poms before eating the eggs!  Obviously, young children will need additional supervision with this and any food craft.
