Design your own Easter Eggs!

March 22, 2018

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:

- Saucepan

- White eggs

- Food colouring

- Vinegar

- Newspaper

- Apron

- Empty egg box

- Tongs

- 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.
