Fun! We had so much fun today, coloring Easter eggs. We had planned to blow the eggs, but due to some time constraints, decided to hard-boil them instead. I think it was probably a good decision since you have to be really gentle with the blown eggs. It’s likely we would have had a lot of breakage. Ben and I do want to try blowing some on our own, though, so we’ll share some pics this weekend if we get around to trying it.
How to Tie-Dye Easter Eggs
Tie-dying eggs is very easy. You’ll need the following:
- food coloring
- paper towels
- plastic wrap
You’ll want to cover your surface with newspaper. Then tear a piece of plastic wrap and lay it on your newspaper. The plastic wrap will need to be roughly the same size as your paper towel. Soak the paper towel in vinegar, wring it out well and lay it over top the plastic wrap. Now the fun part! Let the children drip dots of food coloring in the center of the paper towel, in about a 6-inch radius.
Use every color you have or pick and choose a color palette.
Once they are finished with the food coloring, just wrap the egg inside the paper towel and plastic wrap and let it sit for a few minutes. The longer the eggs sit inside the towel, the brighter the colors.
