Eggshell Mosaic


This is a great way to use up the remains of the Easter eggs. Your child will have a lot of fun breaking up the eggshells, and the pretty colors make a great mosaic.

Materials:
  • Colored eggshells
  • Construction paper
  • Crayon, pen, or marker
  • Glue
Directions:

  1. On a piece of construction paper, have your child draw a simple design.
  2. Fill it in with glue and add the bits of colored eggshell.
  3. If you don't have colored eggshells available, dye your eggshells just as you would dye hard-boiled eggs.
