Easter Eggs: Daddy Deggster Egg

Total Time Needed:1 Hour

With his paper tube body and glued-on features, this egghead family member will crack your kids up.


  • brown and white hard-boiled eggs
  • toilet paper tubes
  • constraction paper
  • glue sticks
  • scissors
  • faux fur
  • 20-gauge wire
  • paper ears
  • markers


Craft Cardboard Bodies: Collect toilet paper tubes, construction paper, glue sticks, and kids' scissors and arrange them on one end of the table. Invite your kids to make the bodies. First, help them cut the tubes to a desired height, then wrap a construction paper rectangle around the tube and glue in place. Next, cut and glue on paper arms, ears, and accessories.

Glue on Faces: Have kids pick and choose facial features from various craft supplies, such as colored paper cutouts, cotton balls, yarn, ribbon, pom-poms, googly eyes, and stickers (for easy access and simple sorting, we packed all the supplies in a large muffin tin). They can then use glue or double-sided tape to attach the features to the eggs. Style Daddy's do by gluing a strip of faux fur to the top of the egg. For spectacles, twist up 20-gauge wire. Don't forget the paper ears and bow tie.

Finishing Touches: To complete the egghead, place the egg on top of the tube body. Add any finishing touches with permanent marker, such as eyes, noses, rosy cheeks, and freckles.
