Did you know you can make chalk out of eggshells? With only a few materials, you can create your very own art supplies!
Have an adult help with this craft.
Wash the eggshells very well, making sure there’s no membranes or egg remaining. Let dry.
Grind up the eggshells. You can do this in a food processor, with a mortar and pestle, or even using a rock against the pavement. Make sure there are no large pieces left. It should be a fine powder.
Put the eggshell powder in a bowl. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons of flour to the powder. Then, add hot tap water to the powder little by little, until it forms a very stiff paste.
Add your favourite colour of food dye to the paste and mix well.
Place the paste on a piece of paper towel, and roll it into a cylinder. Let dry.
Draw a chalk masterpiece with your eggshell chalk!
