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.

All set for some egg bomb action!!!

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.

  1. that sounds like fun! I will try it at home with my boys. Did you know that egg shells are good for your garden too? they work on your plants like vitamins, the stomped shells can be hosed away towards the garden to feed the soil =) go Caleb!
