How to make it

  1. Three-eyed Alien Easter Eggs

    Print the template and use it to cut out a pair of green paper ears for each alien. Fold the ears in half to create a center crease, as shown.

  2. Three-eyed Alien Easter Eggs

    Fashion an antenna for each alien by first folding a 3-inch long thin strip of green paper in half and gluing the two sides together, stopping 1/8-inch from the ends. Then fold the ends out to the sides, as shown.

    Next, use the paper hole punch to create two green dots and glue them together, sandwiching the top of the antenna between them.

  4. Create a stand for each egg by wrapping blue paper around a section of a toilet tissue or paper towel tube and securing the overlapped edges with glue. Add a thin strip of purple paper around the top of the tube for a collar.

  5. Set the eggs sideways atop their stands. Use glue dots to attach the ears and antennae. Add three eyes to each egg, placing the center one slightly higher than the other two.

  6. For the finishing touch, draw a wide smile on each alien (this is easier to do if you remove the egg from the stand and hold it in one hand while drawing with the other).
