“Eggbert the Easter Egg” is one of our favorite Easter songs. A couple years ago my oldest and I made these cute socks puppets to use while we sing. All you need to make one yourself is a yellow sock, a square of white felt, a scrap of orange felt or any other fabric, fabric glue and two googly eyes.
To Make an Eggbert the Easter Egg Sock Puppet:
1. Cut an egg shape from the white felt. Then use the fabric scissors to cut it in half.
2. Put the sock on your hand and fold it over. Determine where to put the fabric glue so that the egg is closed when your hand is closed. Stick the egg pieces on and allow to dry.
3. Cut a small triangle beak out of the orange fabric.
4. Glue the eyes and beak on the sock to make Eggbert.
5. Get ready to sing!
I was going to include a video of me singing the song with the puppet so you could learn the words, but I can’t get it to work. After a little Googling, I found a YouTube video of a version sung by Rosemary Clooney. Enjoy!
