I have been working on this product for years. Yep. Years. I begin working on it and then Easter comes and I tell myself that I’ll finish it the following year. Well, not 2017. 2017 is the year that I dominate stuff. So, I finished these complementary activities to use along with Jan Brett’s, The Easter Egg.
The Easter Egg – here is my affiliate link (or click the picture above).
Your next step is to grab fun materials, if you don’t already have them. The kids have an opportunity to create dazzling eggs, participate in STEM or STEAM challenges, and other fun activities.
Click any of the pictures to take you to purchase these products, through my affiliate links. Then, see how my son used all of this fun stuff below and gather ideas on how you can use it in your classroom.
These eggs are great for the challenges, or just for fun!
And the materials below are the six materials used by the rabbits in the story (wood, paint, metal parts, chocolate, dye, and flowers). You can use these for the STEM or STEAM challenges. With the STEM challenge, I would use a more malleable product to create ovoids. Then the students could enhance their ovoids with the other materials. Some of my favorite malleable art-mediums are (affiliate links):
With the STEAM challenge, I had my son use these materials with a large, plastic egg, as well as the blank paper egg (provided in the pack). You can see all of the product-in-action shots below. Click any of the pictures to take you to my affiliate links. . . or go to Michael’s and get this stuff.
And hold it all together with either of these:
Here is a glimpse into some of the fun that your students can have and a good idea of what’s in this pack.
You can even prepare your kids for Earth Day by creating a Dazzling Earth Egg!
The options are endless! You could glue this onto black paper and write with a white crayon or use to create a large earth-collage. Have fun with it!
