Pete the Cat is a what I like to call a “new” classic kids book.
It really hasn’t been around that long, but it’s such a great book that kids totally gravitate towards it.
We’ve read all the Pete the Cat books in our home. In fact, we’ve even created some fun and educational Pete the Cat activities to go along with the first book.
We not only have the Groovy Buttons board game, but we also have the newer Missing Cupcakes board game.
Even with all these Pete the Cat activities, my kids still want more, so I created these easy Pete the Cat Easter eggs.
They’re the newest addition to our collections of easy Easter crafts for kids.
Read on to learn how to make these super simple, dye-free Easter eggs for kids.

Pete The Cat Easter Egg Decorating Directions:
Depending on the age of your kids, you may need to do some prep work to get the eggs ready for decorating. You can hard boil your eggs or use a sewing need to punch two holes in the eggs and blow it out.
Or you could go use these wooden eggs.
After your eggs are ready, paint each egg the corresponding color. For Grumpy toad, I couldn’t find a paint color that was a close enough match for my taste so I custom mixed Citron Green and Daffodil Yellow.
I painted each egg with about 4-6 thin coats to get a more even look.
Print out all the printables on thick, heavy, white paper. Cut out the base wraps and the corresponding heads.
Wrap the base piece around the egg to determine the size needed, then secure with tape or a glue dot.
Place the egg on the base wrap and then use a glue dot to secure the face to the front of the egg.
Tip: For Pete the Cat and Callie’s ears, I used glue dots to stick them to the sides of the head, but in retrospect, I think hot glue would work better. The glue dots were too raised so there is a small gap between the paper and the egg where you can see them.
Voila, you’re done.
These Easter eggs are really so simple and I’m sure your little readers will love them!
