Last week was the first of our two Easter themed weeks. The songs and rhymes I chose for this mini topic were: poussin poussinet, lapin pistache, saute petit lapin (a French version of sleepy bunnies), deux petits lapins (an Easter version of 2 petits oiseaux), le printemps and lapin de pâques (like nounours nounours but an Easter bunny version I made up).
For our craft I took my inspiration from Pinterest and decided we would paint Easter egg pictures with pom-poms.
First we drew the outline of the eggs onto craft paper, the children then had a variety of different coloured paints and different sized pom-poms to use for their painting. They used pegs to pick up the pom-poms and dip them in the paint and then printed onto the paper with them. Once dry you can either display as they are or cut out the eggs and glue onto Easter cards.
Here are some of our eggs, sadly I got distracted and didn't manage to photograph them all.
