Easter is approaching which means lots of fun and crafts for the kids. Here is a snappy blog to help you decorate your very own Easter eggs (with real eggs!)
For this activity you'll need the following:
- White eggs
- Food colouring
- Empty egg box
- Rubber band
- Stickers (optional)
- White wax crayon (optional)
Lets get started!
Step 1: Boil your eggs in a saucepan with water then reduce the heat and let the eggs simmer for 10 minutes. Then drain the eggs and add cold water to stop the eggs from cooking.
Step 2: Wear your handy apron! Set the table with newspaper and lets start painting!
Step 3: Fill different cups halfway with hot water, add 1 teaspoon of vinegar and one teaspoon of food colouring. Then simply add your eggs to your chosen colours and let it sit for 5 minutes and wallah! You have a perfectly coloured egg.
You can use a white crayon to write a message or draw a design before you dip the egg into the dye, once dyed the wax will remain leaving your design!
Get create and send us your designer eggs to firstname.lastname@example.org for it to be shared on our facebook and twitter!
