Our last brain-related activity was to design a helmet that would protect our egg pilot in a fall. The shell, I told them, was his skull; the egg white and yolk was his brain. Then I left the kids to it!
LD designed a balloon-encased egg protector.
DD designed a construction paper protective cloak:
Mom designed a cotton ball-play dough helmet:

Then it was time for the big drop:
We checked to see which egg pilots survived.
DD’s made it through unscathed:
Mom’s design was a bust:
LD’s egg pilot survived and lived to see another fall (and another and another!)
