To stuff the eggs with a class full of kiddos, we sit in a circle, and I roll one or two empty eggs to each child, and then the treat(s) to put in the egg. The children open their eggs, stuff them, and close them up again, then hold it straight up in the air for the other teacher to collect. When they're ready for another egg, they hold their hands out in front of them, to show me they'd like another. We train the children to do it this way so they understand that we don't want a dozen children yelling at us for help, for more, for ... well, really, for anything! Each day from now until Easter, or until the eggs are all filled, we'll stuff a few eggs. The children LOVE doing this, seeing the treats, and helping to prepare for our big Easter egg hunt. Unfortunately I didn't take any photos of this in action - I was very busy handing out treats and eggs!
Some of my young artists wanted to draw and decorate eggs to follow up, so I offered a variety of stencils with ovals, hearts and star shapes to help them make their shapes. We had a lot of egg pictures today, and the stencils will stay available in the art center for as long as the children are interested in them.
When we went outside, we took 50 empty plastic eggs and a bunch of baskets and containers with us. The children all hid the eggs in the backyard, then came back together, counted down from ten to zero, and... ran!
