Creating green eggs and ham in preschool

The children made their own green eggs and ham as a part of their time in creative art…

The teacher supplied the children with a tub of white glue and shave cream mixed together for the egg whites…

The children glued a piece of foam “green ham” on their paper plate…

Then dipped some “egg white” on their paper plate…

I think it is safe to say that serving the “egg white” on the plate was the favorite part of this activity…

Once the children had a good scoop of egg white, they added a green pompom on top for the egg yolk…

Then they added a fork. Some of the children used tape to hold the fork on the plate and others just set the fork in the glue/shave cream mixture which should hold the fork in place once everything dries overnight…
