Back before Easter, as I scoured the Internet for craft ideas, I fell in love with Family Fun’s plastic egg animals. They were super adorable. Since I was working with lots of plastic eggs, I thought they would be great.
Alas, they did not make the cut for my blog because you needed to hot glue everything, no other glue worked, and as I try to make the crafts friendly for all ages, hot glue, preschoolers, and toddlers do not mix. (Surprised? I was. I mean the boys just LOVE guns.) Rather than pick a mouse, a dog, a cat or any animal the website had, Evan picked a tiger. So he drew on the lines; while, I cut and glued. It turned out pretty cute. (No picture of the mouse and tiger because Sean loved pulling things off than putting them on.) (Also, I think I can come up with more animals and do it through the year.)
Me: Great tiger, Evan. It was a great idea.
Evan: Mommy! I want to make Gooey!
Me: You what?
Evan: I want to make Gooey!
Ok, kid. Let me think. I let him pick the egg. Blue. I turned it so the thin end pointed down (or the bottom of the egg as my grandma calls it). I glued four pom poms to the “bottom.” Then Evan picked only one eye. And there you have it, folks. Gooey. The twin brother of B.O.B.
