Paint styrofoam eggs with hobby paints and pin them to barbecue sticks to have something to hold on to while painting. Once the eggs had dried (approx 1 hour), decorate them with adhesive stickers in the shape of eyes, noses and lips etc.
The egg men got legs out of metal chicken feet and small plastic hats. The eggs became real personalities and the kid’s enjoy playing with them.
If you want to add more details to your egg men you can make arms out of pipe cleaners or wings out of feathers.
