This weekend we dyed wooden eggs. I have seen the beautiful colored wooden eggs on Etsy and really wanted to see if we could make our own.
Using Rit dye from the craft store, I used 2 cups of hot water and about 1/2 a packet of powder dye. Once it was mixed and dissolved we floated the egg, turning it and drizzling water on top of it. Within a minute or two the desired color was reached and the egg was removed to dry.
We have used them in circle for a bird egg finger play we are learning this month and my daughters have been using them for "Easter" play.
