Eggs!

It is that time of year again where we crack eggs. 2 rules...keep it in the bowl, and DO NOT put your hands in your mouth. We watch them closely and for the most part they follow the rules. Of course....keeping it in the bowl is hard, and I know that, so I don't care when they get it on their clothes, the floor, their hair...etc. I just keep giving them gentle reminders to keep it in the bowl. I do this every year and the children love it. This is about an hour project. They work in 2s and between them they crack about 3 dozen. When they are done cracking they start mooshing and dripping, and exploring their bowl full of eggs. It is quite the experience to watch. Olivia, who has been with me for over 3 years now....looks forward to it!! Even Lainey who is now 8 came to join in!














At first they cracked all the eggs into the bowl and put the shells into the crate. When they were done cracking they added the shells!





I am pretty sure Alondra would have gotten in if we let her :) Of course...Quinn is the last one. I think he was the last one last year too. I will have to go back and check. Here he is pretending his hand is a claw of some sort of bulldozer.....and here he is picking it up with his 'claw'. I washed all the clothes for you parents! :) I didn't think you would like dried on eggy clothes.

I started doing this because the kids love to crack eggs during cooking and usually only 1 or 2 children get to crack the egg, and I wanted to give more children the chance. We use so many, because the more the better...and I probably could use even more! I do nothing with the eggs. It is a tad wasteful, but I feel it is worth the experience of cracking, feeling the egg squish between their little fingers, the temperature, and the overall experience. I try to create experiences I know they will never experience at home...and this is one of them. AND...they LOVE it!! :)
