Egg Stories to Read for Easter
As Easter is rolling in, we are reading a variety of egg books – some old, some new to us. One story that we get out every year is The Easter Egg lavishly illustrated by Jan Brett. You can do any number of art projects with this particular book, but this year I chose to give my kindergartener a more open-ended activity for her Easter crafting.
Easter Creative ChallengeAs an Easter creative challenge, I took out a pack of craft fun foam in the shape of eggs (I got it for $1 at Target) and challenged daughter to make something with these “eggs”. I expected that she will decorate them, but she had other ideas. She decided to make “egg people”
Child-Led Easter Projects Are Fun!Daughter (who is not very crafty) embraced this creative challenge with a lot of enthusiasm – perhaps because I discussed with her different possibilities at first. This made me think that I need to find time to present her with these open-ended challenges more often. She also wanted to write “facts” on the back of our egg people – their names, ages, addresses and favorite foods. I think they turned out pretty neat!
