MLK Jr. Activity!

This is one of my favorite activities to do around Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
(I'm not sure where the original activity came from....
but whoever it was thank you!!!)

You need two eggs.
One brown.
One white.

I went to the store to buy two cartons of eggs.
 The first brown carton I picked up had a white one in it.
Perfect or what?!?!?!?!
I buy those eggs all the time and I've never, ever gotten a white one before!

Talk to your kids about the similarities and differences between the eggs.
Mine kids mentioned the color and the size.

Then talk about what they think the inside looks like.
Will they be the same?
We voted before we cracked them.
Some thought they'd be different.
Some thought they'd be the same.
One even asked if we could vote for "we're not sure!"

Then crack them open!
They're the same!!
I swished them around too and asked if they could tell me which was which. :)

We talk about how the color of our skin or hair may be different, 
but we're all the same on the inside!
What matters the most is the way you act and treat others.

We can all be friends. :)
Their answers made me smile.

Have a happy week!!!
