Today we’re going to show you three ways you can dye easter eggs.
You Will Need
- Hard boiled eggs
- Rubber bands
- Rubber cement
- Shaving cream
- Tooth picks
- A spoon
- A cookie sheet
Rubberband Easter Egg Dyeing
- First we will use rubber bands. Have your kids put lots of rubber bands all over the hard boiled eggs.
- Then set the egg in the dye. Take the egg out of the cup, once the egg is dry remove the rubber bands and then you have a cool design.
Rubber Cement Easter Egg Dyeing
- We let our kids color a cool design on the egg with crayons. To not hide the cool design behind the dye, we cover it with rubber cement. You can also make designs with the rubber cement by itself.
- Next, stick the egg in the dye. Wait a while, then pull the egg out of the cup and let it dry.
Marbleized Easter Egg Dyeing
- First dip your eggs in vinegar. This will make your colors more vibrant.
- Next, cover a cookie sheet with shaving cream and smooth it down with the back of a spoon
- Then add drops of food coloring, and mix it into shaving cream with toothpicks.
- Now roll the eggs into the colored area of your choice.
- Cover your egg completely in the colored shaving cream. Wait 10 minutes, then remove the egg from the cookie sheet.
- Gently wipe off the shaving cream with a paper towel. Your egg should come out marbleized with different colors.
NOTE: Don’t clean off the shaving cream with water, it’ll wash away the dye.
As a BONUS, use a permanent marker to give your easter eggs some personality by drawing silly faces on them.
