Usually my eggshells go straight into my compost. But this is a fun way to reuse them as well!
I love the great number of Christmas pictures that you can download free off of the internet. I like to try and have the kids decorate them differently each time. We’ve colored (with markers, pencils, crayons, etc) painted, melted crayon, glued yarn on, used tissue paper, etc.
I thought I’d try something new this time. So I boiled some eggshells (that I cleaned out) with green food coloring and some in red food coloring. I used lots of dye because I wanted red, not pink!
Here are some of our colored eggshell masterpieces. This was really fun for the kids because they got to smash up their own eggshells. We just covered the pictures with glue and then sprinkled the eggshells on top. We did the red berry first, then the green leaves.
