Sela & Linus's Egg-sellent Adventure

What to do with eggs?
Here's where we started...

I got Linus set up.
Dry pinto beans & plastic eggs

Jellybean Pouches
And then Sela & I worked on these.  I found this idea from Small Wonders at The Crafty Crow.  We changed the pattern a bit, so we enjoyed creating our own tutorial.

Trace your egg shape. 
We used the inside of a cookie cutter to get the size we wanted.

Cut out three.

For the Bottom ("B"), cut off the top third of an egg.
For the Top ("T"), cut off LESS THAN two-thirds of another egg. 
"T" should overlap "B" when both are stacked and sewn on the whole egg.


Use a whipstitch to sew "B" onto the whole egg.

 Add "T" and continue to whipstitch.

Fill with treats!
This one is for the Easter Bunny. 
Santa gets cookies, she should get something, too.

Linus's adventure evolved this way.
We eventually made our way to our book stack and enjoyed these together:
The Golden Egg Book by Margaret Wise Brown,
Max's Chocolate Chicken by Rosemary Wells &
The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes by Dubose Heyward.
