Don't throw those
colored eggshells you spent so much time creating away when you eat your
Easter eggs. Instead, break them up into pieces and create a special
picture for your parents (or grandparents).
Get out your piece of paper and draw a flower, angel, or whatever you like
to draw. After you draw it, spread some glue all around the
inside of the picture. Sprinkle your broken eggshells onto the glue.
When it's dry, you'll have a lovely picture to give to someone special
or hang in your room.
If you use a heavier paper, like construction paper, you can even turn this into a placemat by covering it with clear contact paper. Your grandparents would love this (hint, hint).
and I have been having fun making "plastic" easter eggs using the plastic
jackets from the Bible Bookstore. ( I'll scan in a couple of the jackets
for you to see.) Some of the eggs we leave empty and place around
the house, on trees, etc. Others, we fill with candy for the kids
to find on Easter Sunday. You can use these on regular eggs as well.
The plastic shrinks around the egg when placed in hot water.
Here is an idea
When all things
are emptied from the egg, the egg represents the empty tomb found on the
