Easter Holiday Projects Part 5 - Tissue Paper Covered Eggs
They all really enjoyed this activity. Baby sweetpea wasn't so sure about sticking tissue paper to her glue and for quite some time just put more and more glue on her egg. We managed to persuade her in the end but only when she was sitting on my knee to do it.
Then she got really stuck in :-)
Here we have the finished eggs, baby sweetpeas feather version, my butterfly one, middle sweetpeas chicken and oldest sweetpeas bumble bee complete with sting in its tail. These were great fun to make.
Just a quick update on the poor pigeon, i am afraid he was put out of his misery last night :-( We couldn't let him sit all night in pain and with his bad fracture there is no way the bones would have knitted back together again. Thanks for all your comments re kiddies becoming more independent, I have sat down with them today going through how they shouldn't talk to strangers etc. It is hard to teach them that not everyone is nice in this world as we live in a lovely village but they must learn this.
