Coloring eggs this time of year is always a fun tradition. Here are a few creative ways to change it up this year adding some sensory fun to an age old tradition!
Whip Cream Eggs
Start with Hard boiled eggs. Next use food coloring to create a design on a bed of plain whip cream, then roll hard-boiled eggs in the shaving cream and food coloring. Let the eggs dry, then gently clean to remove any excess whip cream. If you’re not planning to eat the egg you can use shaving cream too!
Rice Dyed Eggs
Dyeing eggs with rice is super fun and easy. Use food coloring on plain rice next role and shake your hard boiled egg in the rice. Mix different colors for a pretty speckled pattern let dry and enjoy.
Baking Soda Eggs
Use a spoon to mix 1/3 cup of baking soda with a tablespoon of water and add 3 drops of coloring; stir until the mixture turns into a paste-like consistency. Repeat this process to make as many colors of paste as you like. You want to use at least three colors on each egg to get the tie-dye. Once you’ve mixed your pastes, place one egg in each hole of a metal muffin tin. Use a paint brush to brush multiple colors of paste onto each egg (you’ll want to wear rubber gloves for this part to cover the whole egg). When each egg is coated in baking soda paste and food dye, it’s time to let the fun begin! Use a dropper or measuring spoon to drop small amounts of vinegar onto each egg; the reaction between the vinegar and baking soda will bubble and creating a tie-dye look. When all the baking soda has dissolved, dip each egg in water to clean it off.
