Put your eggs in the soapy water and sink them. When your eggs are full of water take them out of the water and shake them around. Next let the water drip out. Finally let your eggs dry.

Step 6: Painting the Blue Bird

Now you can enjoy painting any color or follow these instructions. Whence the eggs are dry. Take one of the eggs and your blue paint. Then paint the entire egg blue. When the paint is dry, paint the eyes with the black paint.

Step 7: Painting a Robin's Egg

If the paint paint on your other egg is still drying you can start this step. Paint the entire egg blue. When it is dry paint little brown spots on it so it looks like a robin's egg.

Step 8: Adding Wing to Your Blue Bird
