a push pin
a bowl to catch the egg
several large eggs
food coloring or an egg dying kit
bowls for the egg dye
several messages on thin strips of paper or money
1. Use the push pin to carefully push a small hole in the top of the egg, then flip the egg over and make a larger hole in the bottom of the egg (no bigger than 1/4" wide).
2. Blow on the smaller hole until all the egg (whites and yolk) have come out. Repeat until all the shells are hollow. Keep all those eggs and make a giant omelet:) Rinse each egg shell in warm water and let dry overnight.
3. Dye the eggs according to package directions. Here's where you can get really creative: use crayons to write messages or tape off patterns before you dye. Remember, the eggs are hollow, so they'll float. You'll have to hold them down with a spoon to fully cover with dye. Place back in egg carton to dry completely.
4. Use a paintbrush or chopstick to help curl the edges of the paper message, then coil tightly and slip through the larger hole in the bottom of the egg. Crack the egg open to reveal the message!
