Rainbow Egg Decorating

  • Eggs

  • Pot
  • Cups

Let’s make some rainbow dinosaur eggs!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAStep 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.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAStep 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!
