Colored Easter Eggs
Colored Easter eggs are synonymous with the festival of Easter. This trend is popular since ages. It is said that these eggs stand as a symbol of re-birth and were used in the rituals of many ancient communities even before the concept of Easter celebrations emerged. Later, on the confluence of some of these cultures with Christian traditions, the colored Easter eggs became very much a part of the Easter celebrations. Making colored Easter eggs is not a difficult task at all, with a little bit of care; one can easily make a basketful of beautifully decorated Easter eggs. If you want to make beautiful colored Easter eggs, here are the instructions.
- A child-safe sharp pin/needle
- Assorted food coloring
- Tape and rubber bands
- Use a sharp-pointed pin to screw a small hole in each end of an egg. Then hold the egg over a saucer and blow hard into one hole until all the contents have run out of the other hole. Allow the eggs to dry out overnight.
- In order to make the tape eggs, cut different shapes from the tape, such as circles, squares and strips. Press the tape onto the eggs in any pattern you like. While pressing the tape ensure that the coloring does not run under. Dip the eggs in the food coloring and when they become dry, remove the tape.
- To make the string striped eggs, you can wrap rubber bands of all sizes around eggs in many different directions. Dip the eggs in the food coloring. When eggs have dried, remove the rubber bands.
