Make Your Own Chalk Color Bombs

Materials
Method
  • Begin by saving hallowed eggshells as you prepare eggs.  To do this gently crack the top of the eggs using a butter knife like so.

  • Carefully break the shell away from the openings until you have a big enough space for the yolks to pass through.  
  • You will then be left with hallowed eggshells!

  • Rinse the shells with hot, soapy water.
  • Then, place them back into the carton to dry.

Making Homemade Chalk Bombs

  • It is now time to fill the eggs 
  • To do this you will be using a simple mixture of crushed chalk and baby powder.  The baby powder just helps the chalk to smoke more when the eggs are tossed.  In place of chalk you can also use store bought color powder.

  • Then, cut squares from tissue paper that are large enough to cover the cracked part of the eggs.  
  • Use a glue stick to cover one side of the tissue paper square with glue, and then carefully press the tissue paper over the eggs.

Rosie and Jewel couldn't get enough and wanted to toss egg after egg!  They even tossed some of them multiple times.  Hey, why not?
Both girls have already asked to make chalk bombs again -a sure sign of a winning play time!

Extend the Fun
Give kids spray bottles of water to use once they had thrown all of the eggs.
