Spring Break activity #56 "Marbling Eggs"

My two youngest kids are on an epic spring break...Four weeks! They go to year round school so it rivals their summer break.  The first 2 weeks zipped by with Science Safari camp and "Seussical", but that's all over now.... So we prepped for Easter by making extra fancy marbled eggs!

We started by mixing food coloring with white vinegar and water.  We dyed them in light colors first...

Naomi is mixing purple.

Phoebe dying red ones.

The last step is to mix water, dye and olive oil.  Then add the dry, dyed  eggs to marble a color on top.

The kids did a great job!

In other news, some of my books have gone live this week on Google Books!

Have a Happy Easter!!

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
