My son was so excited to see Easter bunny ears in the local store. He wears them every day whereever we go the bunny ears are on his head. He feels he is a bunny- jumping and hopping like one. That gave me an idea of doing an activity of painting eggs.
I bought some ceramic eggs with a string from the store. They will make good ornament for X-mas tree I think.. to remember lovingly when I am old about the days when he was 26 months old:)
Then the painting started. He asked for colors. As usual he asked for his favorite colors - red and yellow. I gave him blue as well.
This is the result of the activity. He played with colors and painted more things other than the eggs:) I made sure he painted all the white parts on the eggs..well almost:)
This activity took half hour or so.
What he learned from this activity:
Mixing colors: red and yellow makes orange. Yellow and blue makes green. It is fun to see his face when mixing these colors result in different colors.
Painting on rounded shape: usually he paints on flat surface so this is something different.
Egg origin: birds,crocodile, snakes give eggs.
Question I asked my son:
mixing yellow and red makes which color?
Who gives eggs? ( he knows hen/ chicken gives egg)
What shape is the egg?
A fun activity for the Easter Sunday!!
