• Marbled eggs

    What you’ll need:

    • Eggs

    • Onion skin

    • Old stockings (ask your mom nicely)

    What to do:

    1. Wrap your fresh eggs in onion skin.

    2. Insert the egg (with skin) into stockings and tie the ends so the egg can’t escape.

    3. Place eggs in a deep saucepan and add cold water till it covers all the eggs.

    4. Heat it until the water is boiling, then remove it from the heat. (Be cautious when removing)

    5. Cover and let stand about 24 minutes. Immediately cool eggs in cold water in a bowl to prevent further cooking.

    6. Remove the pantyhose and see how your eggs are marbled.

  • Tie-Dye your eggs

    What you'll need:

    • A colander

    • 10 hard-boiled white eggs

    • ½ cup of white vinegar

    • Food colouring

    What to do:

    1. Choose the amount of hard-boiled eggs you want to colour.

    2. Place them in a colander in the kitchen sink and splash them with the vinegar.

    3. Drip yellow food colouring on the eggs.

    4. Gently shake the colander for a few seconds to help the colour spread.

    5. Let the colour set on the eggs for 30 seconds.

    6. Repeat steps 3 and 4 with up to two different shades (any more and your colours may get muddy), allowing each to set for 30 seconds.

    7. After the last colour has set, give the eggs a light rinse with water and let them drain for a minute or two.

    8. Air-dry them on paper towels and voila!

  • Eggs to the rescue!

    If you have no antiseptic or healing cream at hand when you have a nasty bruise, the best thing to use for rapid healing of the skin is an egg. It also helps to soothe and cool small burns.

    • Water

    2. Stir in lots of salt (about 6 tablespoons).

  • Message in an egg

    What you'll need:

    • An empty eggshell

    • Strips of paper

    • Pencil or pen

    How to make the empty eggshell:

    1. Gently poke two holes in a raw egg. You can use a needle, toothpick or a nail. (Ask your mom to help you, if you’re scared you’ll break the egg.)

    2. Using the same needle, try to scramble the inside of the egg. This will make it easier to remove.

    3. Using a straw or an empty syringe, blow out the inside of the egg over a bowl. (You can make scrambled eggs later!)

    4. Pour a glass of water and pour it over the egg shell to rinse it out. Shake gently and repeat until the egg is completely clean.

    5. Dry the eggshell in the microwave by putting it on high for 15-30 seconds. After the microwave pings, wait a minute or two for the egg to cool.

    You can use your empty eggshell in loads of different ways! Paint it, plant little succulents in it – get creative!

    What to do:

    1. Write a little message on the piece of paper.

    2. Roll it up and gently push it through one of the openings.

    3. Tada!
