Easter craft for kids: Eggshell homes
oooh Easter craft is my favourite type of craft.... mainly because of the easter chicks (you can see more about my easter chick obsession here and here).
I bought a new batch of Easter chicks and we decided to make them some little eggshell homes. I don't have any specific quantities or instructional information for you because we didn't measure anything. It was all a bit experimental!
We carefully broke three eggs – dividing them in half as neatly as we could. We cleaned out all the eggie bits inside. Once our colours were chosen we covered the eggs in warm water mixed with food colouring. We didn't want super dark coloured eggs so we didn't overdo it on the food colouring.
We let our eggs soak in the water, checking them now and again. Once they had soaked up pale shades of colour we took them out of the water and let them dry on paper towel.
Our eggs were brown chicken eggs so the colour isn't fabulous on the outside but the insides look awesome... beautiful pale, blue, green and yellow. Our little chicks are very happy in their eggshell homes.
