Make Volcano Eggs

Yesterday Travis and I tested out a few ways to dye plastic Easter eggs. We had another batch of eggs (this time more properly ceramic rocks, which are meant to be painted), so although we know the results wouldn’t show up that well, we still wanted to have fun with the process!

In a small bowl, stir together 3 tablespoons baking soda, 10 drops food coloring, and just a bit of water until you have a thick paste.

Dribble the paste over the eggs – I recommend using a baking sheet or other craft bin as a base, because you’re about to have a mess!

Drizzle 1 tablespoon vinegar over each egg, and watch the colors run!

Travis couldn’t get enough of the fizzing.

This was so fun we mixed up a second bowl of color and repeated the process.

Bubble bubble!

As with our previous egg crafts, the color didn’t really set on the fake ones, but a few streaks were left behind. I’d love to hear if you have great results with real egg shell!
