We’re always after that simple, mess free, boy-ish craft my little engineer can tinker on and this time he’s actually the one that had the idea! (Although I found it online with a quick search so I think he might have seen a video on youtube before suggesting it) So we hopped in the car, did a quick run to target and viola!
We hope you enjoy!
What you need:
- Easter Eggs (with holes at the top and bottom)
- String or fishing line (a stretchy line works “best”)
- Hot glue/Glue Gun
- Red felt, paper or foam (for the tongue)
- Googly eyes
Here’s how you make it…
STEP 1: Tie your string to the end of half an Easter egg. This will be the tail. TIP: If you’re using cheap (but cute) twine like mine you can use a piece of tape at the end of the string to make it easier for your little to string through the eggs.
STEP 2: While alternating colors, use your string and thread the rest of your Easter eggs. Make sure to set aside the bottom half of an egg for your Slither.io’s head.
STEP 3: Use scissors and cut out a red tongue on your choice of material; felt, foam or construction paper. You’ll want to cut a slight line in between the two holes and thread the tongue through, adding hot glue to the inside to secure it.
STEP 4: Tie a tight knot on the inside of the last egg to ke ep them all strung along the string.
STEP 5: Take some hot glue and glue on the eyes as well as the head to the last opened Easter egg.
