Fun Activities To Do With Eggs

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!)

So, while I’m probably going to leave the bulk of the egg-dying activities to Easter Sunday at my in-law’s, I did want to do some fun egg activities with the kids this week as part of our school.

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!

What egg activities will you be doing this week? Don’t forget that eggs are cheap this week at Albertsons and King Soopers (especially after this printable coupon).

And, if you prefer cooking eggs to experimenting with them, here’s a great roundup of egg recipes from Abby!

  1. My 2 year old is severely allergic to eggs. She gets hives if they touch her skin. So we can’t dye eggs for Easter. Instead, we’ll be painting wooden eggs!
