Today, Brigitte kindly brought us eggs to decorate!
She had blown out each egg using a special tool to make them all hollow for us.
Children compared the differences they noticed between the full and empty eggs.
We were fascinated by this interesting process of making the egg hollow...
That’s why it was heavy! Because it was full of yolk! - Cate
Have you ever decorated eggs at home?
Why do you decorate them?
Because it’s Easter. - Bea
So the Easter bunny will come. - Luke
I dyed eggs last Easter - Frannie
We discussed that although many of us are familiar with people decorating eggs when celebrating the Easter holiday, in others cultures people decorate eggs for many symbolic reasons.
Some people decorate eggs to be displayed as beautiful symbols of protection!
I know. Because bad guys hate beautiful! - Finlay
Please look for your child's beautifully decorated egg in his/her cubby bag. (wrapped in tissue in a brown paper bag)
Enjoy the extended weekend. We hope it's a happy one!
