Easter is not the the only time that the “egg-throw” is appropriate. I think, it’s good for all summer long! Any clear-skyed day is a great time to get the paint out and start filling your empty egg shells.
So, if you are interested in making this egg-throw a part of your summer, I included step-by-step instructions below.
What you will need for an Egg-throw:
1. Empty egg shells
2. Paint for filling the empty egg shells
4. Tissue paper that is cut into little squares
5. A Canvas or Board of your choice
First of all, to save you a lot of time, you will want to start saving your egg shells. Unless, you want to do “The big egg-hall” like me (over 200 eggs in one day).
NOTE: if you would like to see a couple pics of my progress, head on over to my instagram @sim_ply_life.
Now, there is a special way to cracking your egg shells for optimal use. I simply tapped one end with a butter knife, then peeled away a small opening. Because I perfer a smaller opening for this project, I poked my finger or a toothpick through the hole to pop the yolk.
After emptying the eggs, you’ll want to rinse them in hot, soapy water and store them in an empty egg carton.
Up to a day in advance you can fill the eggs with paint. Sqeeze your favorite paint into the openings. I do about one big sqeeze, but honestly, use your own judgement. Filling the eggs to the top would simply give a bigger splatter!
Hurray! That’s it. Now, let the glue dry before throwing the eggs, to avoid messy fingers!
You can throw these paint-filled eggs at a any type of canvas or board. It is up to you. Have fun! The dried canvas, would be a nice addition to your home decor!
