Decorated eggs


This activity allows your child to get creative and experiment with colour as they paint and decorate eggs to celebrate the festival of Norouz. The painted eggs are made from hard-boiled eggs so make sure your child is at a safe distance while the eggs are cooking. They'll get to practise their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they carefully hold and apply the paint to the eggs.
