Happy Hippity Hop! Send a Secret Message Easter Egg

2 mins read

You will need:

1 egg (with egg blown out)
1 pin
pen or pencil
xacto knife or scissors
a small box (that will fit an egg)

Step 1
Blow out the egg yolk out of the egg.  Simply pierce both ends with a needle, making sure to create a big enough hole for the yolk and whites to come out of.  Blow into one end into a bowl, until all of the inside yolk and whites have been removed.

Step 2
Paint the egg to your liking.  We love their polka dot one! Psssst! To make a perfect polka dot, dip the end of a pencil’s eraser into the paint, then dab.

Step 3
Cut a strip of paper for your message using an xacto knife or scissors.  We love the use of graph paper or accounting paper.

Step 4
Write your message.

Step 5
Roll up the message small enough to fit into the whole (you blew out of)  of the egg and insert into the egg.

Step 6
Place in box! Make a fun “hint” message for the top inside of the box if you like!

Step 7

Happy Hippity Hop!
