Halloween Fun With Eggs: Egg Costume

Over on Disney Family Fun, I found a fried egg costume that you can make with your children.

Since the site gives instructions on how to make the costume, I thought that it would be fun to write it up as if it were a recipe. So here you go:

Results: 1 serving


Measuring tape
Electric knife or scissors


1-inch-thick white foam (see Steps 1 for length, width 24 inches; available at fabric shops)
Large clear plastic bowl with lip (ours was 12 inches in diameter; available at party stores)
Yellow acrylic paint
1 yard of 1 1/2-inch-wide grosgrain ribbon
Heavy-duty adhesive-backed Velcro


1. To find the right length for the egg white, measure from your child's chin to the floor and subtract 8 inches.
2. On the foam, draw a free-form egg white with the marker.
3. Cut along it with an electric knife or scissors.
4. Trace the bowl on the back of the foam.
5. Cut a hole 2 inches inside this line.
6. Paint the inside of the bowl yellow (this may take several coats).
7. Once it's dry, insert it into the hole.
8. To make the strap, have your child hold the egg to her chest.
9. Apply Velcro strips to the foam and the ribbon at the appropriate spots.
10. Trim any excess ribbon.
