I never dyed eggs until I got married. My family-in-law was pretty incredulous at that, but honestly, I still kind of prefer the plastic eggs filled with Snickers and jelly beans over pastel-colored, hard-boiled eggs. ;) (No one here even likes hard-boiled eggs!)
I would really like some hollow eggs to display as part of my home decor and thought the kids would have fun blowing them out, so a Google search led to this post with three easy tricks for blown out eggs. (Man, my best friend and I blew out an entire goose egg with our little lungs a long time ago… Why didn’t we know about those tricks?!)
And then, I saw that that same blog had teamed up with another blog for a whole week of egg activities, like walking on raw eggs (we are so doing this), decorating hot eggs with crayons, egg geodes, bouncing eggs, and more! Our science/art for the week is totally planned out.
Oh, and, if you are going to be dying hard-boiled eggs, here’s how to do it without that nasty gray ring around the yolk!
And, if you prefer cooking eggs to experimenting with them, here’s a great roundup of egg recipes from Abby!
