As we start to get closer to October you're starting to think about fun art projects for your students. How about decorating hard boiled eggs? If you had to rule out pumpkins for a variety of reasons, this might be the way to go. Some brainstorming with the class and I'm sure you will hear they have plenty of ideas on how to turn their eggs into creepy crawly things. I've done eggs differently a number of years. It's easy if you take care of the prep and have the eggs ready. Some years I've had really helpful generous parents and they have done it all. I've set them up as one of my centers during my reading time and it's made it a lot of fun for all. I had a lit ceramic haunted house set up complete with a spooky cemetery. As the students finished they added their eggs to finish the look of the haunted mansion.
