I’m thinking about keeping my extra supplies on hand and having the kids recreate these during our annual camping trip too, they would be a perfect afternoon animal craft.

Paint the wooden eggs with the base colors. You will need to give each egg 2-3 coats of paint and make sure to allow the paint to dry completely.

Once the wooden eggs are fully dried, paint a face and stomach onto each egg. Use the photos as a reference. This step will require 1-2 coats of paint.

Allow the paint to dry completely on the face and stomach.

After the face and stomach are dry, paint a nose onto each of the animal eggs.  Add a white line on top of each nose with paint to give it dimension.

Next, use a pencil to draw the eyes and a mouth onto the animal eggs.

Once you are satisfied with how the eyes and mouths look, trace over them with a black paint pen or permanent marker.

Allow everything to dry completely, before the upcoming gluing steps.

First, glue the ears on top of the egg, then tails on the back slightly sticking out to the front and finally the porcupine’s spikes onto his back.
