Step 2: Make your egg stands

Curl each strip of card into a circle and tape it in place.

You need this circle to be the right size to hold an egg so that it can stand upright.

Step 3: Cut out ears, wings and feathers

From the patterned card cut out two little bunny ear shapes for the rabbit and two wings shapes for the chicks.

For the chicks also cut out a feathery shape for the top of their head too. And a tiny beak.

Make a very small fold at the edge of each shape you have cut out to make a small tab. This is where you will place the glue to stick all the pieces onto your eggs.
