You’ll need nothing more than an empty egg carton and some tempera paints to make these egg stands. The edges of the egg carton make the best hens. Shape the body with scissors then use the scraps to make a crest and a beak. Color the elements and leave to dry (you may need to paint a second coat of white). Give the crest a tapered base that you can drive through the hole at the top of the ‘head’.
