Five Little Easter Eggs with a free template

Five little Easter eggs,
lovely colours wore,
Mother ate the pink one,
Then there were four.

Four little Easter eggs,
two and two, you see,
Daddy ate the green one,
Then there were three.

Three little Easter eggs,
before I knew,
Sister ate the purple one,
Then there were two.

Two little Easter eggs,
oh, what fun!
Brother ate the yellow one,
Then there was one.

One little Easter egg,
See me run!
I ate the last one,
And then there were none.

This is such an easy felt set to make. Decorate the eggs with Ric Rac as I have done or use your imagination and try sequins and ribbon.

I’ve provided a template for the egg pattern here.

Another one sprouted,
