The Easter Egg Farm

The Easter Egg Farm BOOK & TAPE

The Easter Egg Farm by Mary Jane Auch is about  Pauline a hen who lived in Mrs.Pennywort's hen house.The problem was Pauline couldn't lay a white egg. It seemed what ever she looked at when she laid an egg that is what it looked like. Find out what happens next in The Easter Egg Farm.

I liked this book because I think it's cool how Pauline makes different eggs every time she lays one. It's also a mystery about what she does. It is a funny book and great for Easter.

Here's a cool craft to go along with the story:

Washcloth Bunny

white washcloth
google eyes
pompoms (one large and one small)
rubber band

Get a white washcloth, turn it with the corner pointed towards you.

Roll the washcloth tightly to the other corner.

When done, bend in half.

Then bend in half again.

Put a rubber band around the middle.

Lift the ends to look like bunny ears.

Tie a ribbon around the rubber band and decorate.

Here's a good snack to go with the story:

My Mom's Easter M&M Pancakes 

2 c. flour
4 tbsp sugar
4 tsps baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsps. vanilla
2 eggs, beaten
2 c. milk
2 tbsps. oil
M&M candies

1. In a large bowl mix dry ingredients.  Make a well in the center and pour in remaining ingredients (except M&M candies).  Mix until smooth.

 2. Pour batter onto a hot griddle or pan.  Add M&M candies.  Cook until batter looks dry around the edges and bubbles form throughout.  Then flip.  Cook until browned.

I hope you enjoy!!
