We’ve been on a bit of a roll with using our plastic egg collection for creative purposes. We have created plastic egg characters which you can read about here and more recently we combined our eggs with paint to inspire some wonderful paintings.
My two older children positioned plastic eggs onto their paper and then incorporated these into a scene (they chose how many eggs they wanted to use for each painting as well as the where they were going to place the eggs). They stuck a couple of pieces of Blu- Tack on the rim of half an egg to secure it to the paper. Miss Three started using the the rim of half a plastic egg to stamp on her paper, but preferred to paint pictures (minus the eggs) instead.
Some of the creations:
Turtles on the beach (by Miss 7):
Snails in the strawberry patch (by Miss 7):
