Easter project in 5 steps

Here is my suggestion for this Easter:
Marbled eggs!

It consists on painting eggs with a marbling effect technique.

This is a project that precedes the egg hunt my students are going go on with me and their PE teacher at the end of this week.

Step 1:

Glue a wooden skewer on (empty) egg using a hot glue gun.

Step 2:

Fill a plastic bowl with water. (make sure it's an old bowl that you can dye with paint)

Step 3:

Drop some glass paint drops into the water. 

Step 4:

Mix the colours softly and slowly with the tip of a wooden skewer.

Step 5:

Finally, immerse the eggs in the water (making sure the children don't touch the paint), and pull them out slowly.

And Voila! 

PS. I must thank my student Mariana, who, after painting her egg, was the super professional photographer documenting the entire process! So, Thank you Mariana!
