The twins came home from Nursery this week singing Humpty Dumpty. They have been doing lots of nursery rhymes and said this was their favourite and could they make a Humpty Dumpty picture. I was planning on making them scrambled eggs for lunch so kept the egg shells. We gave them a good wash and lay them to dry. I wanted quite big pieces so didn’t cut them too much.
I made a Humpty Dumpty template for them to use. If you want to use it then look here for a free pdf of the egg template. Another time I might just give them the materials and see what they create but this time we wanted an end result.
Rose instantly lost interest in doing this and made her own under the sea collage. Charlotte loved using the gloopy glue and spreading it on the area to work in. I gave her a real paint brush and it made it much easier than with a glue spreader.
After that Charlotte stuck on the pieces of egg shell. They need to be pressed hard so they stay stuck down. Charlotte is nearly four and could do this totally independently now.
