What Works For Me 59/365 All it takes is some egg shells


Sometimes my life is made a bit easier by the fact that preschoolers are easily impressed.  On my day off on Monday I used some of our out of date eggs to crack and keep the egg shells.  After boiling and bleaching they were ready for egg shell sculptures.. We let the preschoolers loose with cardboard bases and PVA glue and they loved it.  It was material that was solid and yet easily broken so they could manipulate lots of tiny pieces.  Some went for using the large parts as much as possible while others concentrated on arranging lots of tiny parts.  It probably isn’t a “pretty” craft but in this case the process was way more important than the product.
