here’s the deal: use the wooden eggs and paint and no hands and no paint brushes but cover the paper with paint.
we used a big open tub (intentionally awkward for one child to hold alone), a shoe box sized clear tub with a lid, and even smaller metal lock box.
we dropped an egg or two in, squirted in some paint and made those eggs move!
let me tell you, this took strength!
and patience. in a class of 14 and only 3 containers, there was a lot of cooperation (and cheering)!
with it being so close to halloween, we used orange (pumpkins) and green (vines) to mesh the themes.
the lock box was fun to close up, lock and not be able to see what was happening inside.
the seemingly indestructible tub with lid lasted two days of shaking and tossing and even kicking.
would you believe this didn’t even break it?
in fact, it was 2 classes later that we noticed a crack had formed.
and check out the admiring face of a friend 2 years younger sitting on the side lines. awesome.
