Decorated Eggs

You will need:

  • Some eggs in an egg box
  • A safety pin
  • A toothpick
  • A straw
  • A measuring jug or bowl
  • Pens and other art materials to decorate

1. Sit an egg in the egg box to keep it steady. Carefully tap and make a hole in the top and middle of the egg with a pin.  Push the end of the pin in as far as it will go to make it a little wider.

2. With the toothpick, put it into the hole and stir it carefully to help break up the egg yolk.

3. Turn the egg over and make another hole in the opposite end with the pin. The hole needs to be a bit bigger but try not to crack the shell. Break up any yolk again with the toothpick.

4. Hold the egg over a measuring jug with the bigger hole facing down. Using a straw, try to Use a straw to flush out the inside of the egg by placing the tip of the straw over the hole and blowing hard. The egg white will come out first, followed by the yolk. Be patient, this make take a few minutes. It is ready when you are just blowing out bubbles of egg white followed by air.

5. Now give the shell a clean by carefully running hot water from the kitchen tap and wiping it with kitchen paper and leave to dry.

6. Decorate with felt tip pens, glitter, sticker, felt or whatever you have at home!

7. If you want to hang the egg, thread the needle and insert it into the top of the egg. Wiggle it until it pokes through the hole in the other side. Thread through, thread on a bead and tie into place. Now thread a small bead onto the thread at the top of the egg and tie into place. Using the thread remaining, tie into a knot at the top, creating a loop to hang.

Potato Print Cards

1. Cut a potato in half. Using a pencil or pen, draw a rabbit and an egg shape onto the potato. Use a pencil to draw a bunny and an egg shape onto the potato.

2. Cut along the pencil line and slice away the potato around them to create a stamp.

3. Now, get a square piece of coloured card that is a bit smaller than the blank card. Glue into the centre of the card
