Easter Egg Hunt


Marbleized Eggs
Supplies: eggs,food coloring, vinegar, cooking oil,cups, paper towels, spoons.
Method: In each cup, combine one tablespoon of each of the following: oil, vinegar, and your choice of food coloring. Add water until cup is 3/4 full. Swirl the liquid, and quickly lower and raise an egg into it. Pat dry with a paper towel, and repeat with a 2nd color. Swirl into a third color, if desired. Pat dry.

Enjoy decorating Easter eggs? There are so many creative ways to dress them up. Here is just a hint of how you can dress up your hard boiled eggs for Easter. Enjoy…..







Marbling Eggs:
Supplies:Enamel hobby paints: green, lavender, purple, or colors of your choice.
Disposable aluminum pans, one per color combination. Rubber gloves, wooden skewers, blown eggs,coffee filters.
1. Select color or combinations, using one or more colors of paint for each marbling bath.2. For each bath, fill a roasting pan with 4 inches of water. Wearing gloves, add 1 tsp. of each color paint to pan.. Swirl the end of a skewer through the paint. 3. Place an egg on the end of a skewer. Swirl it around through the paint mixture. When the paint has adhered to the egg in a marbled pattern, remove the egg from the skewer to an egg carton and let it dry. Repeat.


Dying eggs using rubber cement:
Supplies: eggs with center blown out,rubber cement, traditional egg dye.
Method: Enlarge hole at bottom of egg and place on a wooden skewer. Drizzle egg with rubber cement, let dry, then dip in a dye bath. When it’s dry, gently peel off the rubber cement. Repeat two or three times with additional colors — a masterpiece!


Water colored eggs
Supplies: eggs, dye, vinegar, water, pie tin, gloves
Hint: Make a dark color version of a dye, and then a lighter. Just add 50% more water to the existing “dark” color to make a lighter version.
Method: To prep eggs, mix 50% water and 50% vinegar and wipe the eggs down with the mixture. Let dry. Start with the lighter colors. Its all about layering light to dark. Hold the egg over the tin on both ends, & pour color over it. After you have made your pour, turn the egg in your hand so the color goes all the way around. You MUST let the color completely dry in between the pours. Use a blow dryer to speed things up. Once your egg is dry, repeat with another light color, or a darker one. You can do a lot of pours, or a l



Speckled Tea stained and Blue eggs:
Supplies: eggs, tea bags, blue and green food coloring, glasses, brown craft paint, toothbrush
Method:For tea-stained eggs, add 2 tea bags to glass of hot water and steep. Lower egg into tea for several minutes until desired color is reached. Allow to dry.
For blue eggs, combine 1 drop of blue and 1 drop of green food coloring in glass of water. Lower egg into dye bath until desired color is reached. Allow to dry.To speckle eggs, use brown craft paint and a toothbrush. Dip brush into paint and lightly splatter and dab around the egg to achieve a random, lightly dotted pattern. Allow to dry.
