Eggs Unplugged

Several of my e-friends post a themed project every Monday, and I figured that I would give it a whirl this week. You can check out their projects (and others) at Unplug You Kids.

Our afternoon projects are always open-ended. I merely puled out two egg cartons, opened the bin of oddball supplies, and let the kids' imaginations go.

Even Baby P got involved, moving ribbons on F's abstract rainbow piece. I made a boring ole' person with a cotton ball head. Agent 004 took my idea and ran -- she has cotton ball people sitting on an egg carton bus. Agent 002 thought that the bus looked like a stop light, so he made a similar structure, but colored his cotton balls red, yellow, and green.

I love to see how the ideas flow.

Next week's theme is "pipe cleaners." I can't wait to see what we come up with.

Welcome! I am so glad you joined us!

Those are wonderful projects. You're right, it is fun to just bring out the supplies and turn children loose. They always come up with very creative ideas that we adults would never think of.

It looks like you all had fun. I look forward to seeing what you all come up with for next week!

That sounded like you all had fun! And I for one can't wait for next week because I have no idea what to do with pipe cleaners.
