For many Australians, Easter is a time for family, friends and food.
With last year’s Easter holiday not being able to be celebrated by many due to the nationwide lockdown, the team behind Australia’s only smiling eggs are helping make the Easter Egg special this year with recipes and crafts that will put smiles on your plate and a smile on your face.
As part of her mission to make everyone feel good inside and out, Sunny Queen will also be donating hundreds of her beloved eggs to Foodbank Queensland.

1. Cut the ends of the base of the cardboard
2. Cut them in half to have two identical cups
3. Cut the longest sections so that they are flush with the rest of the cup.
4. Place one on top of the other, aligning the spaces. Place duct tape in the section between the spaces, both inside and outside
5. Cut out the shapes for the outer ears (x2); inner ears (x2); feet (x2); and teeth (x1). Allow enough length on the shapes to glue or fold an edge / flap. Cut an additional strip of paper.
