These Dinosaur Eggs are a fun variation to common Easter Egg decorating. Plus they would make a fun addition to a Dinosaur party.
Easter time is here and my boys are really excited for next week. Not only for Easter but because we have Spring Break off the entire week before Easter. Since my boys have each gone through a stage where they were obsessed with Dinosaurs, I knew these Dinosaur eggs would be a fun Easter project for them.
I originally saw this idea in the Savoring the Seasons cookbook and knew we had to try it out.
All you need is:
- Hard boiled eggs
- Small cups or bowls
- Liquid food coloring
1-Boil and then cool your eggs. Once cool you can gently tap and carefully squish (for lack of a better word) the entire shell to create cracks all over the egg. Try and keep the shell as intact as possible but it’s okay if little bits of the shell fall off.
2-Fill small cups or bowls with water and add about 10 drops of food coloring for every 1 cup of water. If you want them darker you can use more. I only used about 10 and they aren’t incredibly dark, but dark enough to show the design.
3- Place the eggs in the cups and refrigerate overnight.
4-In the morning you remove the eggs from the containers and rinse off any additional coloring. Then carefully remove the shells, rinse and enjoy!
Not only are these fun for Easter but they would be really fun for a Dinosaur birthday party. We did a Dinosaur party a few years back and I wish I had seen this then. These would have been a great food idea. Oh well…with 4 boys I’m sure there will be another dinosaur party in our future.
