Individual Challenge #1: Eggcellent

You’ve been given a new friend – it’s an egg! This challenge is to decorate your egg in whichever way you choose, then take it on a tour of your community or your house. Photograph your new member in lots of different places. Don’t let them crack!

Resources Required:

  • An egg
  • Textas


Individual Challenge #2: AlphaPhoto

This challenge is to take a photo of something beginning with each letter of the alphabet.

Resources Required:

  • Camera


Individual Challenge #3: Pet Playdate

Who doesn’t love their furry friend? This challenge is to spend some time with your pet and have a playdate, or, draw/create what would be your ideal pet.

Resources Required:

  • Pet OR paper and pens


Individual Challenge #4: Walking on eggs

This challenge is to conduct an experiment. Let’s go for a walk! On eggs!


  1. Spread the plastic rubbish bags out on the floor and arrange the egg cartons into two rows on top of them.
  2. Inspect all of the eggs to make sure there are no breaks or fractures in any of the eggshells. Make any replacements that might be necessary.
  3. It’s important to make sure all of the eggs are oriented the same way in the cartons too. One end of the egg is more “pointy” while the other end is more round. Just make sure that all of the eggs are oriented in the same direction. By doing this, your foot will have a more level surface on which to stand.
  4. Remove your shoes and socks. Find a friend/parent to assist you as you step up onto the first carton of eggs. The key is to make your foot as flat as possible in order to distribute your weight evenly across the tops of the eggs. If the ball of your foot is large, you might try positioning it between two rows of eggs instead of resting it on the top of an egg.
  5. When your foot is properly positioned, slowly shift all of your weight onto the egg-leg as you position your other foot on top of the second carton of eggs.
  6. There will be creaking sounds coming from the egg carton, but don’t get nervous. Ask your friends to step away so that your full weight is on the eggs.
  7. If you have more than two cartons of eggs, what are you waiting for? Keep walking!

Resources Required:

  • At least 2x cartons of eggs
  • Garbage bags
  • Some friends or parents! (optional)
