Make an egg sheep: step 1

Via: Sainsbury's

To make your sheep last as long as possible, it’s best to remove the inside of the eggs before you start. Make sure there’s a grown-up around to help with this. 

Using a needle, pierce two holes in the shell of your egg, one at each end. 

Then use a thin straw to blow into the egg as hard as you can. It's best to do this over a bowl as it could get messy! Finally, run some water through your egg, dry it and you’re ready to get started.
