I was experimenting, and I discovered this cool method of dying Easter eggs. All you need is Easter egg dye, dishwasher soap, and a straw.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Prepare Solution
Pour 1/2 inch of dye (darker colors work best) and 1 squirt dish soap in a cup.
Step 2: Add Egg and Blow Bubbles
Place hard-boiled egg in cup and blow bubbles with the straw until the egg is covered. (don't drink it)
Step 3: Drip Extra Dye on Top
The dye will drain off the egg in a couple of seconds, so more is needed to produce a stain. Drip extra dye with a spoon or dropper onto the bubbles, taking care not to pop them. Keep dripping for about 1 minute.
Step 4: Finishing
Scoop the egg out of the cup with a spoon and pat it dry with a paper towel. Allow to dry completely, and you're done!
Some of the dye colors did not work as well. If it doesn't seem to be working, try another color.
