What do you do with left over dyed eggs?

It's a well known fact... kids love to dye eggs, but they hate to eat them.  So, what do you do with the left over dyed eggs? You could make egg salad or deviled eggs, of course, but kids won't eat that either. How about using the egg shells to color a picture?  I asked the kids what they wanted to "color" and printed their request off google images, by typing in "flower coloring sheet" or "truck coloring sheet".

What you need:
1. Coloring pages 2. Dyed Eggs 3. Glue 4. Paintbrushes
Peel the eggs.
Put some glue in a bowl.  
Separate the eggs shell colors.

Paint some glue onto the area you're coloring
Use the shells to fill in the coloring sheet.
