To get the fun under way, first, an adult must boil your eggs for 15 minutes and then let them cool completely. Protect your work area with newspaper and set out the supplies needed for each technique. Add drops of food colouring to a deep container filled with a small amount of water, using a paintbrush, mix the two together.
How to make it
- Just wrap your egg with rubber bands before placing it in a container of the dye.
- Gently place the egg into the container and move about with the paint brush to ensure all areas are covered with dye.
- Remove it when it reaches a shade you like, let it dry, then remove the rubber bands. Or, to give your egg a few different shades, take off only some of the bands before dyeing the egg in a second colour.
- Leave to dry.
