Old MacDonald Had a Farm Eggs – Materials

Today’s tutorial uses wooden eggs – wooden eggs are great for “longevity” of these type of Easter Decorations… however, we ADORE crafting with REAL Egg Shells.. and you will be surprised by how well kids are able to handle precious egg shells! Really, they can do it. It is great for fine motor skills too… and if an egg shell breaks whilst crafting? Well it doesn’t matter…. they were “free” after all.. right? All part of the process.
