I had no clue if this was going to work but when I saw that these reinforcements and stationary stickers were on clearance I took it as a sign. I had to t least try and find out. In the end it sort of worked, we had fun, I have blue fingers and hours after the fat only one egg has been cracked and subsequently eaten.
- Gather your materials. You will need some cooled hard boiled eggs, paper to protect your table ( we have some cardboard under the newspaper, stationary stickers, dye and a dye hook. I caved and grabbed the commercial dye , I swore I was going to go au natural this year but exhaustion got the better of me. Here is a wonderful post from Crunchy Domestic Goddess about how to dye them naturally, I bookmarked it intending to use it.
- Get everything prepped before inviting the kiddo to the table- dye is not something you want “help” with.
- Add your stickers. These reinforcements worked ok, but were really hard to get off once dry.
- This lace pattern was my favorite.
- My son wanted to make a happy face ( this was the egg that broke and turned into part of his lunch).
- The circle stickers were much easier to take off.
- Dye your eggs.
- Add in a color mixing lesson too! We added the blue to this pink after to make purple.
- Let dry and remove the stickers. Some came off easily, some did not.
