Activities & Crafts:
Cut a cardboard egg carton in half lengthwise. Give one half
to each child. Paint the egg carton with green tempera paint and
allow to dry. Cut the sections apart and punch a small hole in the
top of the each section; Thread a length of string, yarn or ribbon thru
each egg section, knotting before adding the next one. Leave a couple
of inches of string between each section before knotting. Add pipe
cleaner antennae and googly eyes to the front section. Other decorations
may be added using stickers, buttons, felt or tissue or construction paper.

the sun. When she touches an "icicle" the child pretends to "melt"
and fall to the floor. Take turns so that all the children have a
turn at being the sun.
