In RFW the children have made and painted their own paper mache dinosaur eggs. They put some PVA glue mixture onto a balloon and then layered lots of small strips of newspaper on the top. Once the paper had dried, the children use paintbrushes and different coloured paint to decorate their eggs. They talked about what kind of dinosaur might come out of the egg and why.
“If it’s a pink egg, there’s a girl inside.”
“We need to paint it yellow as T-Rex’s are yellow in the egg.”
“I think it will be purple with white spots.”
