While surfing the internet I saw a really cool idea for coloring eggs. Since it is Easter time I decided to give it a try in the name of the holiday spirit. It is really simple actually and has amazing results. You take a bunch of eggs, hardboiled them and let the fun begin. You roll the eggs on the counter causing them to crack but not fall apart. With your lightly cracked egg you add the food coloring and let it sit.

After a little while the eggs are ready to be peeled. The the fun really begins and the wonder of colors comes into play.

Ready, set, PEEL!

Underneath the plainly colored exterior of the eggs lies a network of colors branching across the starch surface of the egg like a spiderweb. It was pretty amazing. The color had seeped through the cracks we made to reveal a colorful network of dazzling Easter Egg design!

It really had amazing results and the inside of the peeled shells was even interesting.

All in all, a huge success and we had a lot of fun experimenting with this amazing idea!
