- Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
- Time Required: 20 minutes (Does not include drying time)
The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.
- Plastic Easter Egg
- Chenille Stem
- Wiggle Eyes
- Paint, Stickers, Etc. (Anything you want to use to decorate your Buggie)
- Craft Glue
- Dremel Tool (or something else you can use to punch a hole in the plastic egg)
Start off by taking the egg apart. Use a Dremel tool or something similar to poke two holes, directly across from each other. Push one end of the chenille stem into one of the holes and then push that same end out through the other hole. Close the egg back up! The chenille stem will be your Buggie's antenna. Bend and fold them however you like.
Now you can decorate your plastic egg bug. Start out by gluing on wiggle eyes (Heidi suggests mixing and matching a smaller wiggle eye with a bigger one). Now you can paint your plastic egg bug, decorate it with stickers, or personalize it any other way you want.
