Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Get Your Materials
1. 2 eggs
2. A pin (it will be easier to poke a hole if you have a pin with a bead on top of it)
3. A straw
4. A bowl
6. Blue, black, and brown acrylic paint
7. Blue paper
8. Elmers glue or hot glue
Step 2: Poke a Hole in an Egg
Poke a hole on the top of an egg with the pin. Then on the bottom of the egg.
Step 3: Blowing Out the Egg's Insides
Put the straw on the top hole and blow out inside of the egg.
Step 4: Repeat
Repeat steps 2-3 with your second egg.
Step 5: Wash Out Your Eggs
Put your eggs in the soapy water and sink them. When your eggs are full of water take them out of the water and shake them around. Next let the water drip out. Finally let your eggs dry.
Step 6: Painting the Blue Bird
Now you can enjoy painting any color or follow these instructions. Whence the eggs are dry. Take one of the eggs and your blue paint. Then paint the entire egg blue. When the paint is dry, paint the eyes with the black paint.
Step 7: Painting a Robin's Egg
If the paint paint on your other egg is still drying you can start this step. Paint the entire egg blue. When it is dry paint little brown spots on it so it looks like a robin's egg.
Step 8: Adding Wing to Your Blue Bird
First cut out two triangles from the blue paper. Then fold the flat end up a little bit. Next glue your wing on the sides of the bird.
Step 9: Enjoy
You can put them up at Easter or enjoy them all year round. I hope you enjoy.
