Have an adult help with this craft.


  • Eggshells, 6-10

  • Hot water

  • Flour

  • Food colouring

  • Paper towel


  1. Wash the eggshells very well, making sure there’s no membranes or egg remaining. Let dry.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Add your favourite colour of food dye to the paste and mix well.

  5. Place the paste on a piece of paper towel, and roll it into a cylinder. Let dry.

  6. Draw a chalk masterpiece with your eggshell chalk!
