Watercolor eggs

For the letter of the week “E” the students painted eggs with watercolor to find the hidden word. They found it more exciting than I had predicted. Then they asked me to paint the other side.

You have to write the word with white crayon making sure you press the crayon hard onto the paper.

I pointed out that we read ‘egg’ however we write e/g/g. They found it very funny and some of them could remember the spelling weeks later.


  1. Like the idea of making the egg shape. How big is it?
