Eggshell Art

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013


Make beautiful eggshell art with your kids. It’s easy and fun to make a mosaic with broken pieces of eggshell dyed different colors.

You will need the following materials:

  • eggshells
  • egg dye
  • paper towels
  • vinegar
  • drinking glasses
  • black card stock
  • pencil
  • white school glue


Start by dying the broken eggshells different colors. Pour half a cup of boiling water into each drinking glass, along with one tablespoon of vinegar and 10-20 drops of food coloring. Wait for 5 minutes, stirring the eggshells occasionally.


Dump each glass into a colander in the sink, one by one. Line a cookie sheet with paper towels, and place the eggshells on it to dry. Don’t mix the colors unless you’re trying to make strange confetti. Let it dry overnight.


Draw a design with pencil on the black card stock paper. Then fill one area with white school glue. Dump one color of eggshells onto the page, pressing the eggshells down. Re-arrange the eggshells until they look nice. Lift the page to let the excess eggshells fall from the page. Then move on to the next color until your design is cmplete. After letting it dry, you can enjoy your finished eggshell art!


Edible Egg Nest

Monday, March 25th, 2013


This edible egg nest is easy to make and looks so cute! It is made of dry oriental noodles mixed with chocolate almond bark. In order to make these nests with your children, you will need the following items:

  • chocolate almond bark (1 package)
  • cheap oriental noodles (2 packages)
  • Cadbury’s Chocolate Mini Eggs (or Easter M&M’s or jellybeans)
  • wax paper


Melt the chocolate almond bark in a saucepan on medium heat. It will take less than 5 minutes, so keep stirring the whole time so that the chocolate doesn’t burn.


When the chocolate is liquefied, break up the dry oriental noodles and drop them into the pot. Stir until the chocolate completely covers the noodles, giving the mixture a nest-like texture.


Now spoon blobs of this yummy chocolate nest material onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Indent the middle of the nests before you put them in the refrigerator to harden fully.


Allow to harden for a few minutes in the refrigerator before adding the yummy chocolate candy eggs to the nest. Then delight your children by allowing them to eat the delicious edible egg nest!
