Ee – Day 3 – Egg

November 3, 2010 at 4:58 pm Leave a comment

This is the one activity that we did last week – it was so much fun we had to repeat.

Egg dying! Who says it’s just for Easter?

We had a simple mix of 3/4 cup water with 1 tbsp white vinegar and several drops of food coloring.

Before dropping the eggs in, we colored on them with white crayon. Last week I let Dig do it all on his own. Today he wanted me to do the coloring, so I wrote big E and little e on each egg.

Once the eggs were in the dye we waited several minutes before taking them out to let them dry off.

It’s kind of odd – I don’t think my boys have ever had hard boiled eggs before last week. They love them! We talked about (and felt with our hands) the smooth hard shell, the smooth soft white, and the soft crumbly yolk.

Eggs are great!
