Easter Eggs Batik Style

We had so much fun dying eggs this year. We got the idea from Kaboose -an online site for family activities. Usually we use hot water, food colouring and a teaspoon of vinegar to help the dye stick.
But this year we added a tablespoon of oil to each cup. We used olive oil but any cooking oil would do.
It marbled the eggs.
The kids took them out and dabbed off the excess liquid with paper towels.
Then put the egg in another cup of different coloured dye.
The eggs look like batik...what a great effect.

"Mom, this year we made the best eggs ever!"
Happy Easter everyone!
