Egg Bombs

My family loves to eat eggs! Normally, I throw away the eggshells. But instead of heading straight for the trash, I decided to keep these for Caleb to play with. It took me two weeks to collect all the eggshells and I found this wonderful recipe for making wet chalk on the net.

For the recipe I used:
Two cups of water
1/2 cup cornstarch
Food coloring

Caleb helped me stir the water and cornstarch together.

We poured the mixture into little bowls and added one drop of food coloring.

We funneled them into the eggs.

Caleb threw the egg bombs on the driveway.

And stomped on the eggshells that didn’t break.

Here’s the egg splat art that resulted before Caleb hosed it all away.
