Egg Farmers of Canada's egg crafts series encourages creative experimentation with an unexpected ingredient. Launched just in time for spring and summer, these crafts illustrate the versatility of eggs and go beyond the popular ingredient's great taste and nutritional benefits.
"Beyond a nutritious ingredient, eggs are a creative addition to crafters' toolkits and easily repurposed in family-friendly home and gardening projects." Promoting sustainability, these craft projects encourage consumers to upcycle egg shells both as art supplies or as gardening essentials. Additionally, with social distancing in effect during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the projects are a fun activity that the entire family can enjoy.
The DIY crafts showcase how eggs can be naturally dyed with fruits and vegetables one has on hand while also highlighting how egg shells can be used to create seed starter kits or how they can be used as natural pest control and fertilizer solutions.
