This weeks project 52 involves having fun with eggs. Yes eggs! The inspiration came from the large number of eggs we have left over from pancake day. In hindsight I think buying two dozen was a bit over ambitious. The game involves “dressing your egg in a cosy home made outfit”. The idea is you use anything and everything to cushion your little egg and stop it cracking for the BIG DROP.
You will need:
Eggs (in the shell as they come, no cheating by boiling)
Various items to dress your egg in, get creative here. We suggest things like:
old socks, bubble wrap, cardboard, plastic bags, cotton wool, google eyes, ribbon ,felt, newspaper etc.
You will need to:
Place all your cosy egg “clothes” on a table.
Give out your eggs .
Dress your eggs, remember the cosier the better.
Name your cosy egg (this is compulsory!)
Find a place to drop your cosy eggs from, ideas include the climbing frame, an upstairs window, a balcony etc.
Top Tip: Spice things up for older kids by setting a timer to “dress your egg” 5 mins should be enough. Extend the drop to a BIG THROW (against an outside wall).
Here’s our attempt – have fun!
