Dinosaur Eggs

on September 22, 2012

These are super cool and amazing and your kids will be impressed! (No need to tell them it’s pretty easy!) My kids are pretty predictable for breakfast unfortunately, toast and butter or boiled eggs are the usual answer to, “What would you like for breakfast?” and I get bored with serving the same thing. Dinosaur eggs spice things up a bit! All you need are

Boiled Eggs

Ziploc bags

Liquid Food Coloring

Vinegar

The first step is to gently crack your eggs all around, leaving the shell in tact, but with a crackled appearance. Place each egg in a ziploc bag and add to the bag some food coloring and a splash of vinegar. (Sorry but I’ve never actually measured this, just put some food coloring in until I like the color). Seal the bag and roll the egg around in the liquid. I let it sit for about 15 minutes in the fridge to get a really good color. Then fill the bag with cold water to rinse the egg, slowly pouring out the liquid and leaving your egg in the now empty bag. Dump your egg onto a paper towel to dry and hand it over to your kids. (Warning they will most likely have colored finger after this!!) Let your kids peel the eggs and discover the marbled effect they have created on their egg and on the inside of the shell. Have fun and enjoy!!
