thanks to many families (and panera) we had enough egg shells to crush and glue on cardboard eggs.
the crushing seemed really therapeutic.
the freedom to use as much glue as needed was fun (in one morning we used 4 bottles). this is reminiscent of the nut piles we made last year.
this activity was clearly an emphasis on the process (though the end product is pretty cool) and we were able to extend our conversation of our 5 senses as we worked.
we could see the egg shells, feel them, hear them crunch, smell them (thankfully they were washed well) but we did not taste them (we tasted an egg earlier in the day). : )
