Plastic Easter Egg Animals

Create pig, mouse, cat, dog, or other animal from those inexpensive plastic Easter eggs. Great for children's Easter baskets.


Approximate Time: About 30 minutes


  • plastic Easter eggs
  • small pom-poms
  • craft foam colors of your choice
  • chenille stem (for pig)
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • black permanent marker


  1. To make the features for your animals, draw and cut out ears, nose, tail, etc. for each animal from craft foam.

  2. For pig, curl a 4-inch piece of chenille stem around a pencil to make the tail, then glue it in place.

  3. For the feet, glue on 4 small coordinating pom-poms to bottom of egg.

  4. Tiny pom-poms work well for noses.

  5. Glue the foam pieces to the eggs and use a black permanent marker to draw the face details.
