Ostrich Egg Water Carriers
We have been looking at African art and also at the way ostrich eggs are used as water bottles. We made our own papier mache eggs and decorated them to resemble the ostrich egg water carriers. We had great fun and got very sticky. When we popped the balloons, some of our carriers wrinkled a bit but we still managed to decorate them and we think they look great. Have a look at the photos below. If you want to see more of our African art work check out the class Art and Design sub page to see our colourful African collars.
