Striped Egg

We know it’s not even St. Patrick’s Day yet, so we are trying to not get too ahead of ourselves, but we just can’t contain our excitement with these Dr. Seuss eggs. Plus, it’s totally fitting to end the week of Dr. Seuss’ birthday with DIY Dr. Seuss easter eggs, right?

We chose some of our favorite Dr. Seuss books as inspiration, including Green Eggs and Ham, Oh, the Places You’ll Go and The Cat in the Hat.

You’ll Need

  • Eggs {you can use real, hard-boiled eggs, or if you want them to last forever, buy paper mache eggs}
  • Blue yarn
  • Red and green Acrylic Craft paint
  • Black thin Sharpie and red Sharpie marker

The Cat in the Hat Easter Eggs:

  • Paint red stripes on the ‘hat’ Easter egg.
  • For the Thing 1 and Thing 2 Easter eggs, we used a round circle sticker and traced it with a black thin Sharpie marker.
  • Remove the sticker, then write Egg 1 and Egg 2 inside the round circle in each egg.
  • Paint around the circle with red paint.
  • Create blue DIY pom poms and use a hot glue gun to glue it to the top of the eggs.

Green Eggs and Ham Easter Eggs:

  • Place and then trace a round sticker on the egg with a pencil.
  • Paint the inside of the circle green.
  • Use a black Sharpie to draw a fried egg outline around the green circle.
