crushed eggshell mosaics

a lot of prep for this one, but really fun. several projects in one.
1st: save eggshells, rinse them out and dry them overnight. (i saved up about a dozen eggs')
2nd: paint each shell - if each shell is only one colour it is easier to keep colours separate for later
3rd: smash eggshells and we organized them by colour in the egg carton
4th: draw outline of picture on paper, cover with glue inside outline. sprinkle eggshells onto glue.
5th: dry at least overnight.

perfect book(s):
Green Eggs and Ham: Dr. Seuss

It seems likey ou could also just use the egg shells left over from Easter. If you do real eggs, that is.
