The Egg Race

18 Mar 2018

  
 

 
     
 
The Coppetts Wood Egg Race – 28th March 2018
 
This year we will holding our annual Coppetts Wood Egg Race on Wednesday 28th March!
 
The idea is design something which will transport an egg the furthest distance possible. There are very strict rules – see overleaf – but your egg mobile can be as simple or complicated as you like as long as fits in with the rules. You could put the egg in something that rolls, try a zip wire, use lego or similar to make a vehicle etc – the ideas are endless! Parents can help but it should be the children’s work. The ‘egg mobiles’ should be made at home.
 
There will be 3 categories of prizes for each class –
 
- The egg mobile which travels the greatest distance
- The most beautifully decorated
- The most original design
 
 
We look forward to seeing your ‘egg mobiles’ on the  28th March.
