I am loving Scribbit's Winter Bazaar and all the fun things that people are coming up with.
My contribution for today is "Messy, messy, messy" eggs. Or felt fried eggs. You will need a plastic egg, some white and yellow felt, scissors, thread, a pinch of stuffing, some pins, and something round (hence the bottle of paint).
Fold your white felt and cut out two fried egg shaped blobs. Trace a small circle onto your yellow felt and cut it out.
Blanket stitch (or regular stitch, I just think the blanket stitch is pretty) the yellow circle onto one of the white blobs. Before you come full circle, shove a pinch of stuffing into the yellow circle and then stitch shut. Now place the two white blobs together and blanket stitch around. (I stitched my whites together first and it made sewing the yellow circle on more difficult).
Now your kids can crack eggs on your kitchen floor all day long while repeating the famous line from Frosty The Snowman, "Messy, messy, messy," until you go a bit batty. My daughter got one of these for Christmas and I'm not kidding about going batty.
I'm going to make one of these for every kid and hide them with the rest of the Easter eggs. If I were industrious like Scribbit I would have made a bunch of them and offer to sell them to you but I'm too busy eating my new ice cream to be that cool.
Oh, and if you happen to have, or can get your hands on those thick round magnets you can use them in your yolk so the egg can do double duty as a fridge magnet. The magnet also helps the eggs fall from the egg shell better (more like a real egg).
