September 2021 – Education: fabulous new resources by best-selling author!


Incredible Eggs is committed to providing a valuable and meaningful learning experience – and only the best will cock-a-doodle-do!

We are delighted to have been working with best-selling children’s and teacher’s author Molly Potter to further build on this key area of our service. The result is an exciting range of fantastic new educational resource packs to accompany our hatching kits! We also commissioned Molly to create a fabulous new resource pack of activities specifically for care home residents.

All of our educational resources are created BY teachers FOR teachers – and these latest additions are no exception. As well as being a best-selling author of teaching resources and children’s books, Molly has over two decades of teaching experience and spent seven years working with numerous schools as an education advisor. She certainly knows how to create first class teaching resources, resulting in a classroom filled with excitement and laughter – alongside buckets of learning of course!

Many teachers will already be familiar with Mollys fantastic educational resources, with so many well-loved books and book series to her name. Below are a few examples:
