This easy-to-follow tutorial will show you how to make DIY Tie Dye Eggs using special transferrable tissue paper. Simple enough for kids to get really creative, all you need is the Giant Activity Box and a few white eggs!
First things first. Get the kids and yourself in old clothes because this fun project is a messy one! You will get some tissue paper dye on your clothes, but it easily washes out and won't hurt little fingers because it's completely non-toxic.
Supplies you'll need:
• Transferrable tissue paper squares from the Giant Activity Box
• White eggs that are hard boiled or blown
• 1/4" artists' paintbrush
• water in a small bowl
First, prepare your tisue squares. Cut them into all shapes and sizes. Triangles and strips give you a lot of options.
Next, brush water over the egg.
Try to keep your fingers in the same place–at top and bottom–and turn the egg while you place layers of tissue on the egg's surface. Layer the lighter colors, like yellow, for more impact.
As you go along, brush the tissue with water and press gently to help it set. It will dry–and dye–quickly. After you've covered your egg in tissue, set it aside in the egg crate it came in and let it dry. The tissue pieces will peel off easily after they dry.
After you've peeled all the tissue paper off, you will have on your hands (besides a bit of dye!) a beautiful set of Easter eggs like you haven't had before.
