Surprise Egg

This month’s Senior Section Lones newsletter featured the exciting ‘Surprise Egg’ as a goodie.

I thought I’d share a quick how-to.

You need:

  • Strips Crepe Paper (1/2 inch wide and as long as possible)
  • Glue Stick
  • Plastic egg (I used the inner bit from a Kinder Egg)
  • Goodies – confetti, stickers, fluffy chick…

How to make a ‘Surprise Egg’

1. Fill up the plastic egg with goodies – you can pop in anything you fancy on any theme. I opted for Easter fun so a mix of confetti, stickers, pastel fluffy balls, little chick and bunny stickers were added.

2. Next start wrapping a strip of crepe paper around the egg. Ideally you want to do it evenly. I found that folding the paper at a slight angle to let you change direction worked well.

3. Repeat the above step

and every so often add in a goodie (something small and ideally flat unless you are going to make a really large ‘Surprise Egg’.

4. When you are happy the egg is big enough (I did four strips of crepe paper) and you have hidden any of the goodies you wrapped in glue the end down.

Now it is all set to place in a parcel and mail to an unsuspecting Girlguiding member 🙂
