Egg-stra Special Easter Eggs


To get the Easter fun under way, first boil your eggs for 15 minutes and then let them cool completely. Spread out newspaper in your work area and get out the supplies needed for decorating. You will need paint or food-grade dyes if you plan on eating the eggs.

After the eggs have been boiled and cooled, start by crumpling and uncrumpling the aluminum foil. Then, coat the inside of the foil with paint. Next, loosely wrap the egg in the foil pressing the foil gently against the egg. Remove and let dry. Afterwards, repeat with other colors you may like. This same method can be used with a lightbulb sleeve, toilet paper roll, or bubble wrap. Use your imagination - get creative!


Tip: According to the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), hard-boiled eggs for Easter and Passover celebrations should be prepared with care.

For an Easter egg hunt, avoid cracking the eggshells. If the shells crack, bacteria could enter, contaminating the egg inside. Also, hide eggs in places that are protected from dirt, pets and other bacteria. Keep hard-boiled eggs chilled in the refrigerator until just before the hunt. The total time for hiding and hunting eggs should be no more than two hours. Then be sure to refrigerate the "found" eggs right away until you eat them. Eggs found hours later or the next day should be thrown out - not eaten!

Happy Easter!
