Easter traditions include fun crafts for kids.
Watch (click on blue links please) how Well Kiddo Max prepares an egg for coloring for his Kindergarten project:
Why would you need to remove the inside from the egg for decorating you may ask:
If you want to hang an egg from a branch or a wreath it needs to be light.
You can also put a stick into the egg to put it into a flower pot for a decoration idea.
First: wash the egg in vinegar water to remove any germs:
Now poke a hole into the egg shell (we used a nail)- gently tap on one spot to break into the shell – yes there will be some that break ..
Watch how a 6 year old does it:
Poking hole into egg shell
Next use your lungs to blow out contents of the egg: (careful not to suck the egg up – not recommended for younger kids as they do not know yet how to control their breath flow)
Removing egg from shell
Voila, ready to decorate:
Paint, glitter, stickers,
Pull a string through the hole to hang eggs or a kabob stick works for flower pot displays.
