We did a really fun art/cooking activity that left my room smelling like vinegar for days. I guess a better smell than the usually preteen funk the fills our nostrils. No really. Preteen boys are just smelly. No matter how much they shower. Anyways – we dyed Easter eggs! It was so much fun and a great way to work on follow directions, color identification, math (we used a timer for how to keep the eggs in the dye), and fine motor skills. Great end to the week 🙂
This activity had surprisingly minimal prep! It was also great to work on waiting skills – how touch are those! One of my kiddos kept checking his egg every 10 seconds. Using the timer helped to illustrate more concretely how much time was left!
