To do this work the child takes an egg paper along with the tray of rubbing plates and a basket of crayons. They choose a rubbing plate and place it bumpy-side up on the table. The egg paper is placed on top and they rub with a crayon to fill in a section of the egg. They can switch colors and textures as they wish. Most children are choosing to cut out their eggs when finished. I love the simplicity of this project. I love that many children who typically avoid paper projects are drawn to this because they can easily be successful. The action of rubbing the crayon rocks across a paper with a textured plate under it provides a lot of sensory input and is wonderful for developing finger strength and dexterity. The large, simple shape of the egg is also great for cutting because it gives functional cutting practice and results in a beautiful finished project. Here are a few samples from the many that have been going home this week.
