Easter is around the corner and I thought we would try a new way of decorating our eggs. I thought it would be fun to create a multi-colour effect. I mean, who doesn't love rainbow colours.
To do this, I thought spray bottles might be the best way to contain the mess. So I headed to Daiso and found a couple there.
What you need:
- spray bottles (Daiso)
- white eggs
- food colouring
1. Place the eggs in a pot of water and bring the water to a boil.
2. Remove the eggs and let them cool.
3. Add water to the spray bottles. Using a toothpick, add a little food colouring and shake.
4. Lay out some paper on the table and place the eggs in the centre. Spray the edible food paint on the eggs as desired turning them to cover them fully. Leave them to dry.
Tip: To achieve the pastel effect, pat dry the eggs with a paper towel.
The kids loved this activity and honestly, I totally loved it too. Creating the coloured effects was so easy and I really loved how all the eggs turned out. In fact, clean up was a cinch which was an absolute bonus.
We brought the eggs to school the next day for my son's friends but I think these make awesome gifts for easter. You could use the spray paint bottles to create the same effect on paper or little gift tags too to accompany the eggs.
