Blowing And Decorating Eggs
What you’ll need:
* Quality Assured eggs
* olive oil
* 1 long needle
* 3-4 mixing bowls
* food colouring
Wash your egg, after drying it, hold it in your hand and taking a long needle. Gently pierce a small hole in the top of the egg, then follow suit by piercing a larger hole in the bottom – the top hole should be no larger than 2mm in diameter while the bottom whole can be slightly bigger.
Take your needle and poke it into the egg, swishing it around for about a minute – this is to break up the yolk.
Take the egg and place your mouth over one end of the egg and blow the contents into a bowl. Rinse the empty shell and allow to dry on a paper towel.
To decorate your eggs, prepare a range of colours in mixing bowls by adding warm water, 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and between 10 and 20 drops of food colouring (depending what colour you want).
Place the eggs in the dye and leave for a few minutes, remove and place on a paper towel to dry.
Decorated eggs should be left overnight to dry.
