Okay, as promised here is the quick & easy egg shell craft. This is such a perfect thing to do with your leftover egg shells after Easter. Especially if you have sentimental little ones who can't stand to see their "work" thrown out!
What you'll need:
Aleenes Original Tacky Glue, 16-Ounce
Design of your choice (download link below)
Baby wipes or damp paper towel (for sticky fingers)
Remove the Egg Shells
Shell your eggs and make some yummy egg salad! (okay, you don't have to make egg salad) Be careful to remove the slimy film stuff on the back of the shell. It will prevent your adhesive from sticking.

Click on the image above to be taken to a high resolution image. Right click on that image and choose "save as" to save the image to your computer.
Choose a design to use as the base for your mosaic. You can download my spring shapes or you can do a google search for any shape that you might want.
Try looking for "coloring book pages" + butterfly etc. to find what you're looking for.
Glue the Easter Egg Shells
You'll hear a little cracking sound as you crush the shell. This is good, you want the shell to flatten out into the glue.
Work in small spaces and quickly so your glue doesn't dry out.
Caution: The egg shell pieces can be sharp so be careful. Mama may need to help little ones.
Finished Easter Eggshell Craft
Once your project dries you can cut out the shapes to create handmade cards (perfect for Mother's Day or Grandma's Birthday) or even a pretty spring mobile to hang in the kitchen.
Hope you have lots of fun with your little ones with this project and if you post photos leave me a link in the comments or by email so I can add you to our "Reader's Get Crafty" Pinterest Board!
Grace & Peace,
