What kid wouldn't love to toss paint filled eggs?  This was EPIC kid fun, and the set-up was really easy, too!

How to Make Paint Filled Eggs

Materials
Method
Begin by emptying out the desired amount of eggs.  We save our eggshells as we make breakfast and then fill them with paint once we have enough.

Emptying the Eggs
  • Use a butter knife to gently crack the top of the egg(s).

  • Then, carefully use your fingers to peel away enough shell for the yolk(s) to pass through.  
  • Break the loose shell fragments away before emptying the eggs to make sure shells don't end up in your breakfast.

  • Then, empty the yolk(s) into a bowl.
  • Carefully wash the empty eggshells with very warm water and antibacterial soap.
  • Allow the shells to dry.

Making Paint Filled Eggs

Once your empty eggshells are dry it is time to fill them with paint!

  • Then, take a tissue paper square and use a glue stick to carefully secure the paper over the egg openings.
  • Cover one side of the square with glue, and then gently stick the tissue paper over the egg opening glue-side-down.
  • Repeat this for each paint filled egg that you wish to make, and then allow the glue to dry.

  • They watched in awe as each egg cracked and the paint splattered.  
  • The effects were so neat, and with each crack the girls were excited to discover the paint color inside!

  • It wasn't long before all the eggs were thrown, but that was ok!  
  • Each egg was able to be tossed multiple times before it was completely cracked and emptied of paint.
