Do you love Easter egg decorating – especially with dye? Me too! Their bright colors just make me so happy! If you’re looking for a new, creative way to decorate your eggs this year, then today’s post is for you! Recently my preschooler and I had a blast transforming regular eggs into rainbow dinosaur eggs. Ooh la la! Aren’t their colorful cracks so neat?
Here are the materials that you’ll need to make your very own rainbow dinosaur eggs.
Rainbow Egg Decorating
- Food Coloring
Let’s make some rainbow dinosaur eggs!
Step 1: Hard-boil your eggs.
Step 2: Let your eggs cool. In the meantime, pour water into various cups. (You want to pour enough liquid into each cup so that your eggs are fully submerged.)
Step 3: Add 10-15 drops of food coloring into your cups. (Note: Darker colors worked better than lighter colors. Our yellow and neon green eggs were not as vibrant.)
Step 4: Crack your hard-boiled eggs by gently patting them on a table top or crushing their shells in your hands. Apply enough pressure so that the shells crack but don’t break apart and fall off.
Step 5: Place your cracked eggs into your colored liquids. Then, place your cups in the fridge overnight so that the eggs absorb the dye.
Step 6: Peel your eggs to reveal their lovely, cracked designs!
This egg decorating idea is so simple, and the kids will love it.
Happy making, friends!
