Fun ways to dye Easter Eggs

 

Today we are going to show you some fun ways to dye your Easter Eggs.

Age: 4+

Duration: 10 minutes ( Not including drying time )

Learning Outcomes: • Develop fine motor skills • Explore creativity

You’ll Need:

  • R22054 Lace Design Paper
  • R15214 Super Value Color Diffusing Paper™
  • R54470 Junior Heart Paint Pipettes
  • Paint Tray
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Elastics or string
  • Food coloring
  • A cup of water

You can use Roylco’s R22054 Lace Design Paper or R15214 Super Value Color Diffusing Paper™ to dye your eggs.

Please see the graphic below. We used both papers. The different texture and design of the paper will create different dying results on the Easter eggs.

  1. Use either the R22054 Lace Design Paper or R15214 Super Value Color Diffusing Paper™ to wrap the egg. Tie the ends tightly with an elastic.
  2. Use Roylco’s R54470 Junior Heart Paint Pipettes to squeeze a few drops of food coloring on to the paper. Then use another Junior Heart Paint Pipette to squeeze a couple of drops of water on the egg. As the egg becomes wet the colors will flow and blend together. Please do not drop too much water on the egg. The more water you add, the more diluted the color of the egg will be.

3. Use the same technique to dye the eggs with different colors.

4. Place the eggs in the paint tray. Let them dry. It will take around 6 hours for them to dry. To speed up the drying, you can use a blow dryer.

All the eggs are dry now! Let’s open them!

You can see the spectacular patterns and colors on the eggs. You can use your eggs as decorations or have an Easter Egg hunt. Enjoy them!
