Fizzy Dyed Easter Eggs
- Baking Soda
- White Distilled Vinegar
- White Craft eggs or Hard-boiled Eggs
- Food Gel Coloring
- Paint Brushes
- Plastic Mini Cups
- Squeeze Bottle (optional)
- First, create a baking soda paint by mixing 1 tbsp of baking soda with 5 drops of food coloring. Mix to form a wet paste. You can add a few drops of water to get the right consistency.
- Next, place the egg in a bowl then start painting with baking soda paste using the paint brush. I purchased my craft plastic eggs from Walmart but these eggs are similar. Your child can use different colors. I set out four mini cups with the baking soda paint for my boys.
- Add vinegar to the squeeze bottle then squirt the egg to create a cool chemical reaction. You can also add the vinegar to a cup if that’s easier for your child.
- Finally, set aside to dry. Your egg should have a unique pattern. It’s okay to dab egg with paper towel to remove excess vinegar.
Scrape Painting Easter Eggs
- Paint ( Easter Colors)
- Recycled Cardboard (cut into squares)
- White Cardstock
- Egg Template
- Butcher Paper, Old Blanket or Plastic Tablecloth
- Print and cut out the egg template.
- Next, add a few drops of paint all over the paper egg.
- Finally, take the cardboard and scrape it across the egg. Start at the top and move downward. Now move in a different direction. Try not to scrape the egg more than 3 times. Set aside to dry.
I had the opportunity to share these easy Easter crafts with viewers of Daytime TV Tampa on WFLA Channel 8. It was a wonderful segment with host, Maggie Rodriguez. These crafts can get a little messy so gloves may be a great idea or have hand wipes nearby. You can view the segment below!
