MARBELIZED EGGS

Level: all
Grades: all | Age: all | Written by: Andrea Mulder-Slater
[Andrea is one of the creators of KinderArt.com]
Summary:

Students will discover how to make the appearance of marble on eggs for Easter.

What You Need:
What You Do:
  1. Drip some drops of vegetable oil into your dye [click here for the dye recipe ].
  2. When you lower the egg into the bowl, the color will stick but the oil will not. The result? A funky marbleized design for you to call your own.

Note: If you want to keep your artistic eggs around for a while, it is best to use blown, rather than boiled, eggs. To do this, hold the egg firmly but gently and with a large needle pierce a hole into each end, making one hole larger than the other. Push the needle through both holes to break the yolk inside. Now, blow into the small hole and force the contents out of the large hole into a bowl until the egg is empty. Rinse the egg, dry it and squeeze some white glue on the holes to strengthen the egg.
