Snorkel Eggs




With warmer weather right around the corner, these eggs decided to start a bit early. They hung up their skiis and grabbed the snorkels.

This is a super easy, super fun egg project to do with the family!

Please give it a try and let me know how it goes :)

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials

  • bottle caps (preferably clear)
  • super glue or hot glue
  • white paper
  • black marker
  • hard-boiled eggs
  • bendy straws
  • scissors
  • egg coloring tablets (I took from a packet that was unused last time)
  • vinegar
  • warm water
  • bowls
  • colorful tape / rubberbands
  • black foam

Step 2: Swim Trunks

  1. Placed the egg coloring tablets in a bowl with hot water and vinegar.
    • Make sure that the water level is not too high, because the swim trunks should only cover about 1/4 - 1/3 the egg.
  2. Dunk the wider end of the egg into the desired color and hold there for a 10 count (for deeper colors, hold longer, and vice versa for paler colors).
  3. Take the egg out and, to avoid dripping or running colors, gently dab the wet spots with a paper towel.

Step 3: Goggle and Snorkel

  1. Cut the white paper to size so it will fit on the bottle cap
  2. Make 2 small dots with the marker for the eyes.
  3. To make the goggle strap you wrap the tape around where you want the goggle to go.
  4. Using some glue, attach the bottle cap goggle to the egg and hold until the glue sets.
  5. For the snorkel, cut the bendy straw to be roughly 1/2" before the bend and 2" after the bend.
  6. Glue the snorkel in place.

Step 4: Flippers

  1. Cut the flippers out of the foam using scissors.
  2. Glue the flippers to the bottom of the egg (colored side).

Now you have an egg-cellent snorkeler!
