E is for Egg! Our hens have been hard at work laying many, many eggs. This week’s Letter of the Week activity will teach your Lil’ Explorer about eggs and that they start with the letter E.

E is for Egg Template

*Construction Paper


*Googley Eye



Step #1
Print and cut out your E is for egg template.
We print our egg on white construction paper and our E on yellow construction paper.
Step #2
Glue the E to a piece of construction paper.
We used blue, but any color will do as long as it is different than the color of your E and your egg.
Step #3
Glue a googley eye to the top right end of the E and draw a beak at the edge of the E.
Step #4
Glue a feather to the vertical line of the E, so that your E now looks like a chick.
Step #5
Glue 1/2 of the eggshell below the E with a slight overlap so that it looks like the E is inside the shell.
Glue the top half of the eggshell at a diagonal above the E with the two corners of the eggshell pieces slightly overlapping.
Step #6

Label the paper E is for egg.
