Egg Hotel & Hospital Update - Did Ben 10 and Darwin Survive The Week?

On Tuesday I posted about the Egg Hotel and Hospital at my children's school, and the challenge the younger children have to look after their decorated eggs. It was only right to post an update!

Ben 10 Egg was first. He came back at lunchtime, and I bow my head in shame. I underestimated my youngest son's ability to be careful, I apologise. Only 2 visits to the Egg Hospital all week! In fact Ben 10 was looking pretty darn good from the front.


Not quite so great on the back - but there's no egg white showing.  He did really well. Total bill 58p.


'Darwin from The Amazing World Of Gumball' Egg didn't fare quite so well. 3 visits to the hospital!


And a total bill that doesn't add up because he seems to have slept rough Monday night with no Hotel charge that day....Total bill 53p


There was quite a lot of shell left in his tank....and he must have taken a Humpty Dumpty style leap at some point during the week. Still no white showing really though. 


I'm really proud that my boy's eggs survived the week 'helping' them in pre-school and reception, and so are they - story of the day was that 'James' and 'The Girl Charlie' didn't have anything left to take home....It's lovely to know that my little boys can hold an egg carefully at story time and carry it outside into the foundation garden. I think I got off lightly with my Accommodation and Medical Bill!

(All money paid by the parents is donated to charity - and it's one of the best £1.11's you could ever spend).

    1. Oooh, sounds painful! :/
      They did really well, I'm very proud of them. I still want to throw away the eggs as soon as they've forgotten about them though :/

  3. I really love this idea, it's so clever and lots of fun. Did James and 'The Girl Charlie' have an eggless walk of shame?

    1. Hahahaha....I asked my 5 year old and apparently "It doesn't matter"....but I know he wouldn't feel like that if it was him :D
