  1. First you have to draw two eggs on your kraft paper. Its best to use a template from the Internet, so that the two eggs are exactly the same size. Now you can get wild.
  2. Paint the two eggs as colorfully as you want. But remember: The eggs are meant to be destroyed. So no tears when your artwork will be ripped in pieces!
  3. When you’re done with painting, you can cut out the eggs. Grab a needle and some thread and start to sew the two eggs together. Don´t sew the whole thing at once. You need to leave an opening for the filling.
  4. Now fill the paper egg with chocolate eggs, nuts or with whatever you want. When everything is in there, you can close the opening. Your egg is now finished and ready to be discovered and opened.
