I like this activity of a couple of reasons; it uses easily sourced materials, it’s suitable for 3-5 yr olds and the eggs remain edible.
You will need:
Eggs, Tissue Paper in Bright Colours Shallow Dish Table protector, newspaper is suitable Paper Towel
Step 1: Hard boil the eggs. Allow to cool. Leave the shells intact .
Step 2: Cover the work table with newspaper or other suitable protector.
Step 3: Tear up tissue paper into small pieces. The grid squares that the paper is sitting on are 1cm square.
Step 4: Put in little water into a shallow dish. Dip the tissue paper into the water then place onto the egg.
Step 5: Continue dipping tissue and placing on egg until the egg is covered. Use the paper towel to mop up any coloured drips.
Step 6: Place the eggs into a cup to dry. Just before the tissue paper dries completely, remove. Pat eggs dry. Your marbled eggs are now ready to display.
I will be attending the North Lakes Farmers Market on Sunday Mornings. Be sure to pop by my stall and say hello.
Have a fun, safe Easter break.
