Grace and Jack used plastic Easter eggs, which were left over from Easter, to paper mache today. They both had such a great time tearing strips and bits of newspaper prior to mixing together a paper mache mixture of flour, water and salt. They each covered several plastic eggs with the newspaper and mache. This was such a fun spring project and it led to many lessons and discussions about birds and spring.
Jack and Grace also covered a small balloon with newspaper and mache to make a mini pinata!
Once the paper mache on the Easter eggs completely dry, Grace and Jack will paint their eggs blue so that they resemble robins' eggs. Grace and Jack will also be making yarn birds nests for their paper mache eggs later this week. I'll be sure to post pictures of the final project. Jack thought it was very funny to paper mache himself on his forehead and cheek! He is such a silly boy that always keeps us laughing!
