Plastic eggs serve many purposes. They can be sought out, filled with goodies, and in our case, used as a teaching medium!
During the course of our Feelings Week, we talked about emotions, and the muscles we use in our faces to create them. We learned that one can express happiness not only with their mouths but with their eyes! To help reinforce this concept, we created a variety of emotion-faces with plastic eggs. Because plastic eggs consist of two components, the top half was affixed with eyes and a nose, while the bottom half contained a mouth. With a simple twist, your little ones created a great number of silly and not so silly expressions!
