What you'll need

  • Perry the Platypus Easter Egg Template
  • Hard-boiled egg dyed bluish-green (using Easter egg dye or gel food coloring) or plastic egg of a similar size and color
  • Scissors
  • Craft paper (orange, bluish-green, and brown)
  • Orange plastic cap (the kind the comes on orange juice cartons)
  • Glue dots

How to make it

  1. Print the template and use the pieces to cut out shapes in the specified colors of paper.

  2. Perry the Platypus Easter Egg

    Use the marker to draw crisscross lines on the tail.

  3. Perry the Platypus Easter Egg

    Use the marker to color a broad band on the hat piece, as shown.

  4. Perry the Platypus Easter Egg

    Prepare the stand by gluing the base of the tail and the heels of the feet to the plastic cap, as shown. Set the egg in the stand.

  5. Fold the platypus bill in half to create a center crease and give it a bit more dimension. Then fold up the very end at the base of the bill and use bits of a glue dot to stick it to the egg. Glue the eyes in place just above the bill.

  6. Attach the arms to the sides of the egg in the same manner as you did the bill in step 5.

  7. Gently fit the hat onto the top of the egg, overlapping the back strips a bit and securing them with a glue dot. Fold the top of the hat forward slightly, if necessary, so that it stands upright.
