Now I shan't teach you how to suck eggs or blow eggs as the case may be. But I will briefly share our experiment this year in dying rainbow eggs. Can you see the top three...Hollow eggs of course float. So you simply float the egg in one colour dye. Then after desired time (the longer the deeper the colour) you lift it out pat it dry and lower it into the next colour. This continues until your egg is rainbow. This is so simple that Rainbow was able to do this by herself - though it is hard waiting, waiting, waiting.
You also get more colours on the egg that you anticipate as when the colours overlap you make new colours. I think in years to come this will be great to predict and discover how colours mix.
If you haven't dyed your own eggs before. Here's the recipe we use.
1 T vinegar
1/4t food colouring (you may need to add more to get the desired colour)
3/4c boiling water. (I'm not sure why it needs to be boiling. In the past we have reused the water over several days, successfully.)
We also did a few wax resist ones by drawing on the eggs with crayons first. I'm not sure if you can see them in the picture.
