Coloured Egg Shell Mosaic

Using eggshells is a great way to modify traditional Mosaic artwork. This is a fun creative craft to work on fine motor skills and attention to detail.


Ideal Group Size: 1:1 or small group


Equipment Needed

  • Eggshells
  • Jars of water
  • Food Dye
  • Cardstock/Canvas
  • White glue
  • Paintbrush/Pencil



  1. Collect eggshells, wash them, and break them into small pieces.
  2. Fill jars or cups with water and food dye of your choice. Add the eggshells and leave them to soak in the dye.
  3. After the eggshells have been soaking for a while, take them out and let them dry on paper towel. They will look like little pieces of coloured tile.
  4. On your canvas or cardstock paper, draw an outline of your design.
  5. Working on one small section at a time, use your paintbrush to paste glue, and lay pieces of the eggshells in that area.
  6. The eggshells don’t need to fit perfectly together. Try to stay within your outline and you will get a great mosaic effect!
  7. Fill each section with different coloured eggshells. You will end up with a mosaic that is easy to do at home!
