Inspired by Hapalab
Age: From 2.5 years old
Activity Duration: 5 minutes
1. 2 fresh eggs
2. 2 bowls, 1 for the shell and one for the egg
3. 1 tray
1. Demonstrate to your chid how to crack an egg, by knocking the egg against the bowl on the right, pull open the shell and put the shell on the bowl on the left.
2. Let your child try it himself with the other egg.
Here is a video demonstration by Hapalab:
Joshua did a great job the first time he cracked an egg two weeks ago (2Y4M15D). It could just be a coincidence that he did it so well. I then showed him the video of the boy in the video cracking the egg beautifullly. Ever since then, he dare not crack an egg, and want me to do it for him. However, he asks to watch the egg cracking video every weekend, and thereafter, he would ask me to crack the egg for him, after watching the video!!! Hmmmm... sometimes it may not help to show your child video of how other children perform the task.
