So I ran across a picture on the Internet and found some instructions ... Thought it'd be a neat thing to put up on instructables. This is also my first so I hope I did okay :)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You Need
You need: ~Eggs, as many as you like ~A stovetop and pot with cover ~As many cups as you have eggs ~Your choice in food coloring .. Purple is best yellow doesn't always work
Step 2: Boiling Your Eggs
Just boil eggs like you would on a normal morning, assuming you know how to boil eggs in the first place... If not then just place your eggs in a pot, cover them with cold water, bring them to a boil, take them off of heat and cover them for 16-20 minutes, and place the boiled eggs in a bowl of cold water. DO NOT PEEL THEM!
Step 3: Intentional Cracks
After you boil your eggs, take the eggs and bang them gently on the counter to create small cracks everywhere .. After a few good bangs you can take the egg in your hand and almost mush it to create more cracks.
Step 4: Food Color
Take out as many cups as you have boiled eggs and fill them with water, enough to cover a boiled egg and put your food coloring in .. For me, purple worked best and yellow didn't work so well.. Then take your crackled eggs and place them in the cups, one per cup and set the cups in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.
Step 5: Enjoy!
The next morning/day peel your eggs apart to reveal an amazing surprise! Watch your kids laugh and enjoy the strangely colored eggs. **above is the purple egg that turned out so wonderful
