Rubber Cement Easter Eggs
This year step things up a notch with one or more of these beautiful Easter egg projects.
Rubber Band Eggs. Easy Peasy! Just wrap the egg tightly with rubber bands and then dye as usual. Remove the bands and you'll have interesting patterns on your eggs. Try wrapping a plain egg with a very pale color first, rewrap with bands and add a darker color over top. There's no right way to do this project and even young kids can get creative results.
Melted Crayon Eggs. The wax of the crayons meets a hot egg and magic ensues! Just sprinkle crayon shavings onto hot eggs or draw on the egg with crayon and watch the colors melt into one another. As long as an adult handles the hot eggs and keeps a watchful eye, children can make these.
Sharpie Tie Dye Eggs. Doodle on your eggs with Sharpies and then drip alcohol on the eggs–the results will resemble marble. So pretty and colorful!
Nail Polish Marbled Eggs. This project can get pretty messy so wear disposable gloves and cover up your work surface. You'll drop nail polish into water, swirl a bit and then drag your egg through the colors. You'll find a ton of spring colors in the nail polish aisle these days–perfect for these eggs!
Rubber Cement Eggs. Drizzle your egg with rubber cement, dye and then peel off cement. Kids will have a blast with this one and the result is a pretty, patterned egg.
