We love using eggs for crafts with our kids and their friends. After blowing out the inside of a raw egg, (duck eggs are great for this project as they are a little bit larger than chicken eggs), you can not only eat eggs for breakfast, but have a perfect egg shell project ready and waiting.
We use the hollow shells to make Easter eggs and have a beautiful collection after years of practice. You'll need thin ribbons to use for hangers in different colors and a variety of paint, lace, sequins, bows, and whatever you want to use to decorate your egg shells with. We have a couple of little wire trees to hang the eggs on and these are now our traditional Easter decorations.
The kids love looking at the older eggs, and crack up (no pun intended) at their early tries. These decorated eggs just get better every year. The hardest part is blowing out the eggs without breaking them. But there's no waste - just keep the eggs in a bowl and make omelets out of the mistakes!
