    you can colour egg shell and break it.. draw some flower or butterfly and stick the shell pieces on to it. . you can get a beautiful piece of art like mosaic work.

    hi

    manju,

    this is a easy and best out of waste craft for your child .because when i taught my school pupil [govt. primary school] they done well.

    take some pista shels, m seal .broom sticks.make the mseal in to a round ball stick it to the broom stick. to the mseal ball stick 5 pista shells
    like flower petals .you can add pollens with beads and pins.[see the attachment.]she can make a bunch of flowers in half an hour.if she can color them o.k if not it is also o.k. best of luck to be a winner .if she wins plese dont for get to inform il .
