Egg Shell Art

We saved our egg shells from breakfast this morning.  I washed them out and let them dry.  Then we broke the shells up into tiny pieces.  We divided them up into little cups and added a couple drops of food coloring.  We mixed them up  but you could put the shells in a baggie and color them that way too.  I cut out the center of a paper plate because it is a little more sturdy than regular paper.  R just squirted her glue on and then sprinkled on the egg shells.  T painted his glue on and sprinkled the eggs.  I think they came out beautiful!  Such a great sensory experience.

This is a fabulous idea - especially for using up any shells which get broken while being decorated for the Easter tree. Lovely to see you at the Carnival of Spring Play.
