Emu Eggshell Chalk

 You will need:
                       

1 medium emu eggshell - broken into bits

1 teaspoon flour

1 teaspoon very hot tap water

green food coloring (optional)

safety mask

Instructions:

Inhaling eggshell dust can be dangerous, so as a safety precaution, wear a safety mask when grinding the shells.  Wash & dry eggshells. Put into bowl and grind into a powder. A mortar and pestle works fine for this.  If you don't have a mortar and pestle, try an ice cream scoop and sturdy bowl.  Or grind in a blender.

 Discard any large pieces.


Place flour  and hot water in another bowl and add 1 tablespoon eggshell powder & mix until a paste forms. Add food coloring if desired. Shape & press mixture firmly into the shape of a chalk stick, and roll up tightly in a strip of paper towel. Allow to dry approximately 3 days until hard. Remove paper towel & you've got chalk! Eggshell chalk is for
sidewalks only.
