Egg Prep for Christmas Ornament

Next Monday, we will be making eggshell Christmas ornaments.  Each student will need to bring two prepared eggshells to school on Monday, December 8. We will be painting them, so white shells work best, but brown would be okay too.  If you family does not eat eggs, please let me know in advance so that I can arrange to have extra shells for your child.

To prepare the egg:

1) Use a pair of sharp scissors to poke a hole in the side of the egg.
2) Starting at the hole, cut an oval out of the side of the shell.
3) Empty the egg yolk and egg white.
4) Trim the oval a bit more if needed.
5)  Rinse out the shell.
6)  Leave it to dry overnight.

The finished decoration will look something like this:

Any questions or concerns, please let me know.
