Many apologies to my two regular readers (Hi Mum!) who were waiting eagerly for updates. Things have gotten a little busy of late. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend.
I hadn't actually planned any Easter related activities for the little ones. Fortunately, Little Man's school had organised a little Easter egg hunt on Monday. One of the teachers had dyed little quail eggs and placed two eggs in little recycled paper baskets and hidden them all over for the children to find. Little Man was most excited to show me the eggs and could barely wait till we got back to crack them open.
Once we got back, I gave them a little rinse (he had dropped them on the floor in his excitement), and let the kids have a go at peeling them open. Little Man first tapped them against each other. He observed that nothing flowed out of the holes, and that he could see the colour white. I started the peeling off and then let them at it. It is a very good activity for pworking on fine motor skills.
Little Man wanted to know if the quail eggs would have egg yolk and egg white just like chicken eggs, so we cut them in half so that he could see that they did.
