Eggcellent end to a Smashing Project

Sorry 😀

We have had really good fun with our farming project even though illness managed to scupper the end and our bread week never came off.  Our egg theme actually ended up taking 3 weeks as we have been taking things very easy and are now in holiday mode but it was Easter so – can’t have enough eggs at Easter.

We looked at different eggs. These are duck, chestnut maran and bluebell aurancana.

We had a go at turning an egg inside out.  It failed but we hadn’t used sellotape.

We had fun with a charity shop kit for building egg towers. It held the egg for about 1 1/2 seconds 🙂
