what you do is get a knife and start poking the big part of the egg, the more pointed part is where the hat goes.
once you have a nice hole, use your fingernail to edge away a bit more of the shell.

poke a hole in the membrane and lightly shake the egg above a bowl to get out the yolk, dont worry about the waste, you can make an omelet or something.

carefully wash out the egg and let it dry for a while.

Step 3: Make the Hat

while the egg is drying, you probably want to make the hat.  what you do here is cut out a long strip of black construction paper and roll it up, make shure to glue (or tape) it so it doesnt come loose.    

Step 4: Make the Face

hot glue some googly eyes to the egg, with a marker, (if you use sharpie, use a normal one, the fine tip ones dont work), draw a mustache and a mouth on the egg. 

Step 5: Finish Up

glue the hat to the egg. and your done!

Glue some heavy things at the bottom inside, such as ball bearings or sand. This will make houdini stand up on his own. Looks cool!
