Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Use your pencil to draw an egg shape on your cereal box. Cut out three egg shapes.
  2. Basecoat your eggs with your Apple Barrel Paint and let them dry.
  3. Paint simple designs on basecoated eggs and let them dry.
  4. Use your pencil to draw three horizontal zig-zag patterns across one egg.  Cut out the first egg where your pencil lines are then trace the cut out zig-zag shapes on your remaining two eggs. You want all the zig-zig shapes to match so that the final three eggs can be mixed and matched. See project photo for reference.
  5. Cut out the zig-zag patterns on your remaning two eggs.
