What Do You Need

What You Need To Do

  • Baking Soda

  • Vinegar

  • Food Coloring

  • Water

  • Bowl and Spoon

  • Plastic Eggs

  1. Empty a box of baking soda into a bowl. This should yield 6-8 large eggs when completed.

  2. Add water a small amount at time until you get a moldable but not runny dough that holds it shape when pressed together. If liquid oozes out when you pack the dough, add more baking soda.

  3. Squish some of the dough into the bottom of the egg and place your item on top. (Disconnect the top and bottom pieces of the egg from each other)

  4. Pack in more dough around the item.

  5. Fill the other half of the egg with more of the baking soda dough and put the two halves together firmly.

  6. Gently lift off top and see how your egg looks. Pack in more dough if necessary.

  7. Put the top back on and pop into the freezer for at least 15-20 minutes. This will help them firm up and keep shape.

  8. While the eggs are freezing, prepare cups with different colored vinegar. Have extra vinegar handy!

  9. Carefully remove the eggs from their molds.

  10. Drop into colored vinegar containers.

  11. Be prepared to ooh and aah and say “wow!
