Dying Easter Eggs ๐Ÿ™‚

Categories: Resources

We did a really fun art/cooking activity that left my room smelling like vinegar for days. I guess a better smell than the usually ย preteen funk the fills our nostrils. No really. Preteen boys are just smelly. No matter how much they shower. Anyways – we dyed Easter eggs! It was so much fun and a great way to work on follow directions, color identification, math (we used a timer for how to keep the eggs in the dye), and fine motor skills. Great end to the week ย ๐Ÿ™‚

This activity had surprisingly minimal prep! It was also great to work on waiting skills – how touch are those! One of my kiddos kept checking his egg every 10 seconds. Using the timer helped to illustrate more concretely how much time was left!

  1. I’ve dyed eggs at Easter almost every year. My students love it and most have never done this activity. This year I’m only going to have 3 colors – red, yellow, blue – and let them choose two colors to mix to make orange, purple and green.

  2. I thought about doing color mixing! Next year for sure ๐Ÿ™‚
