Easter is a challenging month for teen programming because the holiday is geared toward children. We try to avoid egg dying or egg hunts and do something unconventional with eggs.
This year we did an Egg Drop Challenge. We set out straws, cardboard, cotton balls, tape, cups, popsicle sticks, and felt. Teens began with placing their egg in a plastic baggie to protect our carpet and they had to use at least four materials.
When they were confident, staff dropped the egg from an 8-foot ladder because our insurance doesn’t cover teens on ladders.
Teens were given two tries/two eggs and everyone succeeded.
