A unique arts and crafts project for Easter, the creative result is impressive, and it is a great activity for children with their parents. Dyeing Easter eggs is a seasonal tradition for a lot of families, and the results are quite impressive. It’s a fun arts project, and the best part is that you do not even need a special kit to do it. With this project, all you need is some easy-to-find materials and a little bit of time. What are some of the ingredients and materials that you need? You will need:
- Food Coloring
- White Rice
- Disposable Containers with Lids
After you have the required ingredients and materials, you will place the rice in a container that you can dispose of later. You will add a couple drops of food coloring to the ride and shake the ingredients. This adds food coloring to all the ingredients and swirls it around more. Once you have finished with swirling the food coloring on the rice, next you will add the Easter egg to the container and shake the container. This adds an interesting and cool speckled pattern to the egg.
The great thing about this project is how it adds a little more creativity to your egg designs. You will be adding a new and different appearance to your eggs over the standard regular colored egg. What else should a person keep in mind when coloring eggs in this way? Bring in the whole family with this project.
It adds to the fun if you have small children who want to take part in this activity before Easter. As you finish off the eggs, you can place them into an Easter Basket that they will have to find the next morning. The amount of cups that you should have will depend on how many different colored eggs you want. This is an interesting and simple project that can really add to fun of Easter.
