Fred's Easter Egg with secret message

Fred's Easter Egg with secret message

For this craft you'll need: an egg (of course!), construction paper, a thick needle, food coloring, tempera paint, a paintbrush, red crepe paper and a marker, among other things. First, empty the egg carefully, wash it, and use the food coloring to paint it. After that, write your secret message and introduce it in the egg. Now let's make Fred the octopus! Crumple the crepe paper to create Fred's head and glue it on top of the egg, then draw Fred's tentacles with temper paint and cut out his eyes and mouth from the template, as well as the speech balloon. Don't forget to ask for an adult's help when things get a little complicated. You can now give your egg to whomever you choose!
