I didn’t realise how much time children would spend decorating felt eggs until I created this set for my grandchildren. I asked them to choose the colour of the eggs they wanted to decorate and then provided lots of felt decorations for them to use. This is a simple idea – which provides open ended opportunities for play and creativity and which leads to discussions about colours and patterns and how many, and what shape and lots of vocabulary development. Children can decorate together – having to share and cooperate with finite resources or work on their own.
