Eggshells and paint….I just couldn’t pass this up!!! We love Art around here and I like to encourage messy play as much as possible since we are all a little sensory unfriendly ;-)
Take empty egg shells leaving them as much intact as possible and fill them up with paint. Then pick your surface, ours was a huge piece of art paper that I laid out in the yard. Sling those paint filled eggs at the paper as hard as you can and watch as the masterpiece is created. I did this activity with the smaller ones and they had a blast but they struggled with getting enough power in their throws to effectively shatter the eggshells so I think it would be even better with slightly older kids. I also think it would have been better to hang the paper up and throw the eggs however I didn’t have a surface I was willing to sacrifice. BUT it turned out pretty well and Mommy had a blast helping along the process at the end (great stress reliever)!!
Ignore my gross muffin tin, I had to use my old, old one. I saved an egg carton to use but my wonderful Husband threw it away (along with the pizza boxes I had saved for solar ovens)…..it’s a good thing he’s cute!!!
