Family Activity 4/4/09

As a contributor with Sited and Blogged, I am going to start a twice monthly posting (every other Saturday) about a family activity or craft. To start this off, I'm going to post a great idea from the Family Fun website.
Plastic Easter eggs
Tiny pom-poms
Crafter's Pick The Ultimate glue or hot glue
Black permanent marker
Time needed: Under 1 Hour

1. To make the felt features for your critters, you can download our template. We used Crafter's Pick The Ultimate glue (hot glue also works well) to attach the pieces to the eggs and a black permanent marker to draw the face details.
2. Pig: Curl a 4-inch piece of pipe cleaner around a pen to make the tail, then glue it in place.
3. Mouse: For its tail, glue on a 3-inch length of yarn, knotted at the end.
4. Skunk: First glue the rear half of the stripe to the tail, then glue the tail and front of the stripe to the body.

Thanks to the Family Fun Magazine for this wonderful idea!
