After they finish coloring in the circle, they cut out the circle. Next, you teach them how to cut the circle into strips. I have them cut the strips about as thick as their pinky finger. As they cut out the strips, I have them lay them out onto a 9 X 12 piece of paper. Once they are done, they see the magic. Their circle is now an egg shape. Lastly, they glue each strip to the paper. The kids are always so amazed by this activity.
There you have it, the exploding egg! A couple of other things to share. Have you signed up for my newsletter? I am getting ready to send out my first one next week. I am planning to do one per month and they will include a freebie. The last thing is to be sure and check back her Thursday night. I am part of a freebie blog hop. A lot of great blogs are giving awwy freebies.
