We’ve been reading lots of books on eggs while learning about the letter Ee! Our favorites books were An Extraordinary Egg, and Guess What’s Growing Inside the Egg. We decided to do a craft that combined the egg theme and the letter E.
Egg template cut out of cardstock or craft foam
Mod Podge or white glue
Craft foam or cardstock for the background
Letter E cut out of craft foam or cardstock
You can either color the whole egg after boiling, or color the shells after peeling them off the hard-boiled egg. That’s what I did in the photo above. I mixed the shells with some drops of food coloring and rubbing alcohol and stirred. Make sure the shells are completely dry before using.
After the egg is covered, set aside to dry.
