nature eggs.

04 April 2012
My daughter is just finishing up a study unit on natural resources. Here is a project we've been playing with in our house related to nature and the upcoming Easter holiday.

Natural Materials Egg Dying:
Have your child collect fresh items from nature (flowers, grasses, leaves, etc.). Place the materials around a raw, white colored egg. Enclose entirely in onion skins and slip into a piece of nylon stocking. Tie closed and place gently into a saucepan. Cover with water and simmer for 20 minutes. Drain and allow to cool. Remove the layers of nylon, onion skins and natural materials.
