Follow up activity:
We followed this up with snack time and then some Easter colouring which we printed off of the internet
We talked about the letter ‘E’ and words that start with ‘E’ like Easter, Egg, Elephant
We then did an elephant dance and sang Nelly the Elephant, by which time it was time for lunch!
