With Easter just around the corner, it’s important that we all get to grips with the main event: the chocolate!
Easter is a time of major importance on the religious calendar, of course. To those who aren’t quite so religious, though, it’s a fun time to pick up some rather tremendous chocolate deals. All manner of unique designs come out, and specialized brands appear that we usually could never get our hands on normally. Chief among these, of course, is the good old Easter Egg.
Great for the sweet tooth and even better to play around with in terms of decoration. Many a parent has helped their child have some great fun with some specially made Easter Egg designs. If this sounds like the time of year that you want to celebrate, then why not invest in some decorative tools?
These simple ideas suggested by Amanda Kingloff from parents.com should give you all the inspiration that you need to get creative with the kids this Easter.
Drip Dyed Easter Eggs
To make this particular kind of egg, you simply need to stand your egg up on some form of rest to keep it upright. Then, you get some food coloring and drop that on top of the egg, spraying it with water to make sure it spreads. Do this a few different times with some alternative colors, and you can create a really awesome, muddy looking effect that just comes to life and truly looks awesome.
This one works really well, too. You simply need to mix up together some dish soap with some water, and a few drops of dye. If you do this, you can create a really soapy looking dye that’s wonderfully bubbly.
Then, use a straw and start to blow into the solution. This helps to bubble it even more, creating a wonderful froth. Once you do this, stir it heavily, dip the egg into the bubbles and let it begin to try out. it should leave an awesome, bubbly looking texture on the egg.
Another fine pick is to use a marble style design. To do this, get some shaving cream and put that onto a large sheet for cooking on. Add in some food coloring to the foam, and then mix it around using something thin like a straw. Do this until you see the colors swirling around in the mixture, creating a kind of marble-style effect.
Now, take an egg and roll it around in the mixture. Let the shaving cream coloring sit on the egg for about 10-15 minutes, and then take the excess off (lightly) with a towel or paper towel.
If you want to make sure that you and your kids can enjoy a much more exciting Easter experiment, then start here. Each of these designs is flamboyant, easy to use and very cheap to make. Just remember that they are for décor and they are not to be eaten after décor has taken place!
