egg crack painting

Pin It
Not the most poetic title for a blog post, huh?  But it's what Bear named this technique when he was 3 yrs old, so I go with it.  I saw this project on a news segment that Deborah Stewart from Teach Preschool did.

Bear loves to cook.  He always wants to help  crack the eggs.  So you can imagine his excitement when he found out we were going to do this project!  I filled up a dozen plastic easter eggs with watered down craft paint, taped paper in the bottom of a large bin, and let him take it from there.

After he'd dumped them all, he looked so sad because he thought the fun was over.  He didn't realize that we could turn it into shake ball art and keep going! 

And of course, if we make a mess together, we clean together.

Here are just some of his creations.  ((I ended up making 3 batches of eggs that day!))

Have you ever considered doing an E-book with all of your projects all bundled in to one? I think it would be awesome!! Because we all know how bored you are. ;)
