As another E activity, I showed Hannah how to peal and chop a hard boiled egg. She loves to help out in the kitchen and so this activity was right up her alley. Lately, she has been asking me to bake in the kitchen. Even though she didn't get to bake she did have fun.
|Carefully pulling off each piece of shell.|
|Hannah loves to do things that require precision and fine detailing. She was meticulous at peeling the egg.|
|Next, she chopped the eggs using a pastry blender.|
We also did an egg craft as an extension of our kitchen work. When I prepared this activity I cut out a piece of white card stock into an egg shape and drew cracks on it with white crayon. Then when Hannah painted the egg, the crayon resists the paint and stands out. The egg looks "cracked".
|She discovered the cracks right way. She asked what the lines were and I explained that the egg was "cracked". She looked at me seriously and said "No mama not broken".|
