More Easter egg fun to decorate your house with…
Materials: YouTube, string (or yarn and embroidery thread), scissors, white glue and a balloon.
Main Learning Outcomes: Developing fine motor skills and early literacy.
(1) First, we will begin by sitting together for a beautifully illustrated story for Easter, “The Easter Egg”, by Jan Brett. If you don’t have the book at home, you can listen to it by following this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKMTJbjjWDY
(2) Now to make the eggs, we need to start off by blowing up a small balloon. Then we need to mix about ½ cup of white glue with ½ cup of water in an old container. With a long piece if yarn (about 2 feet), place it in the glue mixture to soak it for only a few seconds. Then pull it out and wrap it around the balloon in different directions. Then repeat with a second piece of yarn, and so on, until your balloon is as covered as you’d like it to be. Hang to dry. Here is link for a demo
