Botero Inspired Escultura De La Primavera {Activity}

On el 19 de abril, Colombian artist, Fernando Botero cumple 80 años. I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to incorporate a little bit of cultura into one of our almost daily activities–playing with plastilina.   Inspired by Botero’s esculturas, we set out to make our own escultura from plastilina and spring chécheres.

While cascarones are normally filled with confetti, flour, and other messy ingredients, I decided this year the kids could make them a little different. We created  little bunny eggs  for each of us.
