If you are looking for a new way to dye eggs with your kids this Easter, this is it. This egg dying technique passes every test that I can think of…
- Accessible, non-toxic materials that you already have. Check.
- Quick and attention grabbing. Check.
- Easy clean-up (of the kitchen and the kid). Check, check.
- Moment of magic. Check.
This marker transfer method has all of the above and more. Click here to watch my how-to video or read below…
What you’ll need:
- Paper towels
- Washable markers
- Spray bottle with water and vinegar (1:1 ratio)
- A plate
1 Color on the paper towel in any pattern. You can do stripes, polka dots, plaid, etc. Make sure to color a large enough area that it will wrap around the egg.
2 With the paper towel on the plate, spritz it wth the vinegar/water solution.
3 Wrap the paper towel around the egg, and cinch in the back with a rubber band.
4 Spritz the egg again, and rub the surface of the paper towel to help transfer the ink.
5 Once it’s dry, about 20 minutes or so, unwrap the egg to reveal the masterpiece.
