In the spirit of Easter, Criss and Worthington Elementary Schools have an egg-stravaganza day.
From egg drops (not the soup) and crazy hair day, it was full on fun.
First grade teacher Jessica Brewer says the kids were very excited.
They've been talking about eggs all week in class – how they hatch, where they come from, egg- speriments and gravity.
“We created a project for them to do at home with their parents, because we feel that family involvement is very important to create an egg drop box to keep their eggs safe,” she says.
It was perfect for Mason since he loves the holiday.
“It's kind of exciting,” the first grader says. “It's kinda like an adventure, like a treasure hunt. Mom helps me make Easter eggs, but the cool thing about making Easter eggs is you get to decorate 'em with a cool design.”
Mason says the best part was dropping the egg boxes, from the ladder on the Parkersburg fire truck to see if they could survive and stay safe.
The smiles on the kid's faces brought Brewer a lot of joy.
