We have been hard at work researching bird’s eggs coloring and sizes. After many sketches the Monkeys have decided on a few to replicate for the center piece. It was complete for the vernal equinox, but slow to post has been my speed lately.
The first coat of paint, then wait (this part was the hardest, everyone wanted to get started on the details)
I really could not stomach another Easter of bright un-naturally-occuring-in-nature eggs. when I expressed this to the Monkeys, they were all on board. Monkey Boy even knew right where the bird book was, excavated it, and all began to discuss the possibilites.
Some of the Monkeys just dove in and others really consulted the sketches and book.
They even got a bit sneaky. See if you can detect the imposter in this post. They thought it would be a great test to my readers to see if anyone can figure out which bird egg is their own creation. Leave a comment with your guess.
We don’t homeschool, but would love to. My husband and I really love supplementing our Monkey’s education with wonderful experiences and research. A close friend who homeschools was amazed what we do with the Monkeys and calls me an After-Schooler, another calls me a Beyond-Schooler. I like those terms they certainly seem to fit.
Leave me a comment with your educated guess of the faux egg!
