What You Need:
- Hard boiled eggs
- Wax crayons
- Crepe paper dye [see recipe below]
- Bowls for your dye
- Some plastic spoons for dipping
- Paper towels
- Plastic wrap
- A covered work surface
What You Do:
- Draw pictures and designs on a hard boiled egg using bright bold crayon colors. Make sure the crayon lines are nice and heavy (don't press too hard or you will crack the shell)
- Put your egg on a plastic spoon and dip it into the dye. You should leave the egg in the dye longer for a darker color and shorter for a lighter color.
- Place the egg on a piece of plastic wrap and let dry.
Crepe Paper Dye Recipe
- Cut strips of crepe paper (crepe paper is the sort of stuff they make birthday party streamers out of).
- Place the strips in a bowl.
- Pour hot water (from the tap or from the kettle) over the paper in the bowl. Make sure there is ADULT SUPERVISION
- Take the paper out of the water using a large spoon.
- Add some white vinegar to the dye (about 1 tablespoon) The vinegar helps the dye to set.
- Let the mixture cool.
- Voila - Crepe Paper Dye
