Egg Shell Man

This craft is actually from my daughter and it has been hanging around the house since last summer. When I first started the blog we were all trying to come up with ideas. This is a planting idea so I told her I would post it in the spring. I am going to write exactly what she wrote, I think it's pretty understandable. We haven't done this for a while so I don't have a specific picture. I'll try to draw one--HA HA!

You will need:

used eggshells (slightly cracked, clean)
markers
glue
pipe cleaners

After you bake a cake or make an egg, your going to have some egg shells left! Hmm, what to do? Well, if you have a preschooler I have just the thing. Use those eggs shells for a decorative knick knack planter. Take your old eggshell and have your preschooler draw a design on it. Then take a pipe cleaner and make it into a small circle to fit the bottom of the egg. Glue the egg to the pipe cleaner so he can stand. Now fill it with some dirt and sprinkle with grass seed. Take some care and soon he'll have hair.

Cute egg heads! I've done potato heads before- thinking about posting about it after I do it with the girls. Same concept, but growing out of the top of a potato. Little eggs are cute for this time of year. Hmmm. Maybe I try both. Eggs and potatoes.
