Making your own felt Easter eggs gift for that someone special is so much fun and will be enjoyed by everyone, especially the very young! It's made using 4 layers of different fabrics/materials that make it sturdy and long lasting!

Playing with this egg fosters the following skills in children -  decision making, eye hand coordination, problem solving, experimenting with design, seriation, self esteem, texture learning and encourages lots of talking with mum & dad (or who is with them at the time) about what they are doing.

This toy is made up of two main components:

  1.  The egg - this is magnetised so it attaches to the fridge
  2.  The felt attachments - each has a wee piece of velcro sewn onto their back

My daughter and I designed this for her 15 month old daughter who is too young to have chocolates. Also I had all the supplies on hand to complete this project quickly.

The egg can be made up into three different characters

  1.  An Easter egg
  2.  An Easter Bunny - back view & front view
  3.  An Easter Chick
