              *EGGHEAD CLOWN (RECYCLED CRAFT / EASTER SPECIAL)



              WIKI NOTE: It is thought that the origin of the tradition of eating eggs at the end of winter is reminiscent of the Ice Age in prehistoric times. After the hard winter, when only remaining provisions, with the arrival of spring birds returning from the south (this only applies to the northern hemisphere) and began to lay eggs, of which humans are fed until they could return hunting with the advent of better temperatures.

              EGGHEAD CLOWN / EASTER SPECIAL
              NOTE: This is just one proposal of a character. All you need is an egg and a cardboard roll of toilet paper to create thousand of different characters. Now, it just depends on your imagination.

                • RECYCLED MATERIALS:
              • HEAD
              1 egg: brown or white
              Marker: red and black
              White tape
              Some coloured wool (red)
              • BODY 
              1 cardboard roll of toilet paper
              3 coloured thumbtacks (pink and blue)
              Some coloured serpentine paper throw (green)
              1 coloured cupcake case (white)
              Clear tape

                • HOW TO MAKE AN EGGHEAD CLOWN
              1. EGGHEAD: How to get an empty egg shell?
              *First of all, wash the egg with soap and water. This is the way to get rid of any germs (specifically salmonella).
              *Place the egg with one end up. Use carefully the thumbtack to make a hole at the center.
              *Turn the egg over. Repeat the process on the other end of the egg. In this process the egg shell could break badly. If this happens, do it again carefully with another egg.
              *Then, take a big breath and blow through the hole. Keep blowing and repeat until there is no longer liquid inside the egg.
              *Run water into the empty egg shell, shake it around and blow the water out.
              Yeah, the egg is ready to make the clown!
              NOTE: If this process seems a bit complicated, just boil an egg. That way, it works well too.

              2. CLOWN FACE / egghead:
              • Eyes and mouth / Draw the eyes and mouth on a white tape piece with a black marker. Cut and paste them into the egghead. 
              • Nose / Draw the nose between eyes and mouth with a red marker. 
              • Hair / Make a small wool pom pom and paste it with clear tape on the top of the egg.
              3. BODY / cardboard roll of toilet paper:
              • Striped costume / Cut the serpentine into pieces for the number stripes of the clown costume. Place them one by one on  the cardboard roll of toilet paper. Fix them inside the carboard roll with clear tape. 
              • Clown ruff / Once the striped costume is done, fit white cupcake case as a clown ruff on the top of the carboard roll. Cut it a bit on the center to fit well the egg clown head. 
              • Buttons / Put 2 or 3 thumbtacks as buttons on one stripe of the clown costume. 
              • Bow / Cut two identical small pieces of serpentine, make a cross with them and fix it with a thumbtack on the clown ruff.

              IDEAS TO CELEBRATE ST. PATRICK´S DAY + 4 RECIPES / VEGAN FRIENDLY



              -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
              WIKI NOTEThe colour green has been associated with Ireland since at least the 1640s, when the green harp flag was used by the Irish Catholic Confederation. Green ribbons and shamrocks have been worn on St Patrick’s Day since at least the 1680s. The Friendly Brothers of St Patrick, an Irish fraternity founded in about 1750, adopted green as its colour. However, when the Order of St. Patrick (an Anglo-Irish chivalric order) was founded in 1783 it adopted blue as its colour, which led to blue being associated with St Patrick. During the 1790s, green would become associated with Irish nationalism, due to its use by the United Irishmen. This was a republican organisation (led mostly by Protestants but with many Catholic members) who launched a rebellion in 1798 against British rule.
