barnyardThis barnyard trio makes a great project for Easter, but the roly-poly pals are fun to play with any time of year.

What you’ll need

3 Styrofoam eggs
Tacky glue
Fluffy, curly, and smooth yarn
Scissors Felt
Black ball-head straight pins
Extra-fine permanent marker


How to make it
Step 1

Flatten the rounded end of each egg by pressing it on a hard surface. Hold this end and drizzle glue on the opposite half. Press the end of the yarn into the glue at the egg’s tip and spiral it around the egg. When you reach the midpoint, cut the yarn.

Apply glue to the egg’s uncovered half and wrap as before, again working toward the middle.

Step 3

Cut ears, a pig nose, and faces from felt. To make ear creases, dab glue on the ear’s bottom edge and pinch barnyard3from the back. Pin the creases in place until the glue sets.

Step 4

Glue the ears and pig nose to the faces and attach the faces to the eggs’ flat ends. Use ball-head pins for eyes, then draw on noses and mouths with a marker.
