We’re excited to have signed up to the Tinkerlab Creative Challenge where each month a certain object is set, and we have to create with it! This month’s object, can you guess, is Eggs!
L, my almost 4 year old daughter, is at a stage(one which I wish will pass quickly), where she is not much interested in activities that takes long. She’d much rather just play by herself, mostly imaginative play, and nowadays it is just school-school!
So what we did with this challenge, since it must be child-led, I told L she is the teacher, and I’m the child, and she must tell me what to do with the eggs. First she said we must draw on them, but then changed it to painting. When we got to choosing the paint and brushes, she saw the box where we painted with water beads, she decided we must use the box to paint the eggs.
She chose pink and purple paint, squirted it in herself(working those fine motor muscles), and then showed me how to roll it;)
She likes this kind of activity, it has movement and it is quick with immediate results.
The paper got marbled in the process too, so we used it(mommy’s idea) to make an Egg card. So pretty!
Such fun! Why don’t you join in on the creative challenge, you can link up also! Come see the other creative ideas by creative kid bloggers, using eggs!
