Since we don’t use eggs often, it took a few months to collect all the shells. On September 10, 2016, I made Nico pick the colors he wanted for it, I used the the craft acrylic paint from the dollar store and I did 2 medium squirts in a styrofoam glass and filled 3/4 of it with water and we stirred and stirred and stirred. Then I tried to fill the same amount of shells with each color, but I placed them randomly in the tray so he wouldn’t do all the same color at once. I also used one color tissue paper and doubled it so he couldn’t see through.
He had a great time, he even had me give it a try.
A little video, some shells are more resistant than others
