Thumbs up Save those pretty colored broken egg shells!!

My own 2 children and several of my Kindergarten classes loved this after Easter craft...I generally used it for a Mom's Day surprise. Save all the broken egg shells from your Easter hard boiled eggs. Spread them on a paper towel to absorb any moisture (or you will have a very stinky mess!!). Have your child draw a design or even better trace their hand print on a heavy duty paper plate. Have them spread craft glue allover the inide of their pattern. Then let them use the broken colored egg shells to make a mosaic like picture for Mom!! After the glue dries spray with Aqua Net or some other heavy duty cheap hair spray to give it a nice sheen and some stability. Have your lil' artist write a message and/or their name and the date. Hole punch two holes at the top of plate and thread with pretty ribbon...and instant masterpiece!! I have the original ones my own kids did over 12 years ago and I love them!! I did put them in a shadow box for preservation sake but they are still terrific!
Have a blessed Easter!

We are going to do this one. It will look great with our tie-dyed and glitter eggs from this year!
